What is the plot of The French Dispatch?
A short synopsis for The French Dispatch promises that the movie will “bring to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th century French city”.
The film will reportedly be set in both 1950s Paris and the fictional commune of Ennui-sur-Blasé.
Where was The French Dispatch filmed?
Decamping to south-west France between November 2018 and March 2019, Anderson filmed his latest movie in the little town of Angoulême.
According to Variety, The French Dispatch was the largest-scale Hollywood production to hit the area since Steven Spielberg shot scenes for Raiders of the Lost Ark in nearby La Rochelle in the early 1980s.
Anderson’s new movie also reportedly had a budget of $25 million (£18.9 million) to play with.
Speaking to NME last year, The End of the F***ing World star Alex Lawther said that while the experience of filming a “teeny-tiny” part of the film was “amazing”, he feared that his part “might be on the cutting room floor”.
“They took over this little town in Angoulême in the south of France and it was one of the biggest productions I’ve ever been involved in,” Lawther recalled about working on The French Dispatch.
“Wes likes to keep the spirit of a short film. All of the actors would eat with him every evening and discuss how the day went. I was only there for two days, but I wish I could have been there bit longer.”
