Wes Anderson the Academy Award nominee is working on a new animated film with Indian Paintbrush called ‘Isle of Dogs’ currently filming in London.
This will be Wes Anderson’s second animated film after the Academy Award Nominated ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’.
The film will be set in Japan and follows a boy’s search for his dog. The voice cast includes F. Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban, Bud Cort, Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Jeff Goldblum, Akira Ito, Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Keitel, Bill Murray, Kunichi Nomura, Edward Norton, Yoko Ono, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Tilda Swinton, Akira Takayama and Frank Wood and will be released in 2018 by Fox Searchlight Pictures.
“Wes Anderson is one of the most talented filmmakers of his, or any other, generation. His ability to write smart and unconventional screenplays and then translate them into unique experiences on screen makes him not only a unique voice in film, but one who can truly bridge the gap between independent films and cross-over hits,” say Nancy Utley and Steve Gilula, Fox Searchlight Pictures Presidents. “We are thrilled to be going on a journey into the newest world from the distinctive imagination of Wes Anderson.”
