WATCH: Wes Anderson Announces New Film… It’s About Dogs!


Movie buffs will recognize a Wes Anderson film at once. Pastel colors, symmetry, and offbeat characters are classic Anderson moves, and the auteur is back with his new film, Isle of Dogs.

Anderson announced the film on a YouTube video, where he politely announced the cast, which contain his usual suspects: Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Tilda Swinton, Bran Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, Courtney B. Vance, Yoko Ono, Kunichi Nomura, Harvey Keitel, Akira Ito, Frances McDormand, Bob Balaban, Greta Gerwig, and Liev Schreiber.

Norton also makes a brief cameo in the video to say that he will be playing the lead role of Rex.

Isle of Dogs tells the story of a young boy searching for his dog. It will be the director’s second animated feature following Fantastic Mr. Fox in 2009.

The film is in partnership with a crowdfunding platform to raise funds for Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation, which protects and restores films. Fans can pay $10 to win prizes, including a set visit to the shooting of the movie.

Isle of Dogs will release in 2018.
