Written by Mark Chappell, the script is set in in 1950s London where a desperate Hollywood film producer sets out to turn a popular West End play into a film.

“A LOVE LETTER TO JOURNALISTS”
There has been a lot of hype surrounding Wes Anderson’s upcoming film, The French Dispatch. The quirky six-time Oscar nominee and artistic genius has made nine successful films in the past, and now his 10th (and hopefully not last) is set to arrive in 2020.
Known to wow audiences with stunning visuals, satisfying symmetry, heartwarming musical soundtracks and iconic mis en scénes, Anderson’s attention to detail is bound to make the flick a success. Here’s everything we know about it so far.
According to reports, The French Dispatch is set in Paris and was filmed in Angouleme (South West France). This actually comes as quite a surprise as the 49-year-old’s projects are hardly ever set in the place he calls home. (Apart from his short film Hotel Chevalier, starring Natalie Portman and Jason Schwartzman as a prologue to The Darjeeling Limited).
A French publication explained that Anderson “fell in love with the old cobbled streets of [Angoulême’s] city centre, and also the ramparts.” Citing a film industry source, they said that Anderson wanted a French city with “unevenness, stairs and preserved architecture.”
Although the plot is still quite enigmatic, we know that The French Dispatch is “a love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th century Paris [that] centers on three storylines.” IMDB is calling it a comedy, drama and romance and the post-World War II film was rumoured to be a musical, but Wes Anderson denied it before filming began.
Jeffrey Wright mentioned in a podcast interview that he’s excited to be part of Wes Anderson’s new film and however not being able to talk about it yet, he described it as “ironic.”
Speaking of Jeffrey Wright, this leads us to the cast – one of which is arguably Wes Anderson’s best, full of Hollywood stars old and new.
The film’s ensemble consists of the regulars, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Bob Balaban. Newcomers Timothee Chalamet (Call me by Your Name), Jeffrey Wright, Saoirse Ronan (Mary Queen of Scotts), Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Colour) Kate Winslet, Benicio Del Toro, Louis Smith, Alex Lawther (The End of the F***ing World) and Henry Winkler also join the cast.
In a recent interview, Ronan said “Wes Anderson throws very lovely dinners at the end of every shoot each day.” A dinner will all those incredible people? Definitely a film buff’s wet dream.
Anderson produced The French Dispatch alongside Scott Rudin, Jeremy Dawson and billionaire financier Steven Rales through Rales’ Indian Paintbrush.
The company has backed the past five critically acclaimed Anderson films, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Isle of Dogs.
It is likely that the distributor will be the usual, Fox Searchlight, while the cinematographer on board is Robert Yeoman, who has collaborated with Anderson in the past and has many nominations including for Academy Award for Best Cinematography.
Photography began in November 2018 and filming just came to a close in March 2019, so we can expect the movie to be released sometime in 2020.
