Jude Law To Appear In Wes Anderson’s ‘Grand Hotel’

    With Moonrise Kingdom still one of the year’s more celebrated films, director Wes Anderson has started looking toward his next project. A few major names have already been attached to Grand Hotel, as its being called, and now there’s one more. While making the press circuit in support of Anna Karenina, actor Jude Law announced that he’s onboard. Law told MTV, “I think we start work on that in January… It will be the usual team [of actors]…. I think my role is fleeting, but I’m very excited to be a part of that Wes Anderson family.”

    Law is joining the likes of Johnny Depp, who, according to Law, “is indeed playing a key role in it.” Rumors have also been abounding about Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum and Angela Lansbury. Anderson also previously noted that Grand Hotel would again find him collaborating with Owen Wilson, who co-wrote Bottle Rocket, Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums. There’s no word yet on a release date for the new project. [iW]
