Following an enforced hiatus due to the global pandemic, Wes Anderson is making up for lost time with two projects in quick succession. 

Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch is still playing in some cinemas, following a delayed launch because of – well, you guessed it – the pandemic. However, the director himself certainly hasn’t been resting on his laurels, and instead has been throwing himself into new projects.

Shooting on his next film, Asteroid City, which stars Tom Hanks, Margot Robbie, Bryan Cranston, Jeffrey Wright, Hope Davis and Liv Shreiber, is already complete. The film, which shot in Spain, will also reportedly contain a number of Anderson’s regular collaborators, including Adrien Brody, Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton.

However, it seems that Anderson is keen to make up for lost time and as such, the director has already set his next project up too, according to Robert Yeoman, a regular cinematographer for the filmmaker. Yeoman has revealed that they will be shooting the film in the UK ‘imminently’.

Little else is known about the project, apart from that it is due some time in 2023, with Asteroid City expected at some point next year.

It’s certainly good news for Wes Anderson fans, who, should all go to plan, be able to enjoy three Anderson movies in the space of three years. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more details.
