Wes Anderson has assembled quite the cast for his next film.

Not much is known about his tenth film, The French Dispatch, other than the fact it’s been described as “a love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris” and that it won’t be a musical (as was previously reported). We also know it’ll centre on three storylines.

Anderson shot the film in France and, earlier this week, Fox Searchlight announced the film would clock in at just under two hours (and not the four hours that was claimed on social media).

Alongside the regulars (we’re looking at you, Bill Murray) is a fresh bunch of actors who are yet to work with the Grand Budapest Hotel filmmaker.

So, who is starring? Click through the gallery below to find out which actors will comprise the cast of The French Dispatch.

The French Dispatch is expected to be released in May, which puts it in line for a potential Cannes Film Festival premiere.

It’ll mark the director’s first film since 2018's Isle of Dogs.
