Wes Anderson's 'Isle of Dogs' Released Next April
Wes Anderson’s new movie Isle Of Dogs has been making some rumblings in the film industry for some time now and finally the film has both a poster and a release date. The film has a stellar cast including Anderson favourites Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum and Tilda Swinton. The stop motion animated movie – set in Japan – follows a boy’s journey to find his missing dog and will be released on April 20th 2018.
The cast really is tantalisingly good with Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Courtney B. Vance, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, Liev Schreiber, F. Murray Abraham and Yoko Ono joining ranks. Anderson shared a relatively enigmatic teaser for the film back in December which showed Norton cast as a character called Rex. He also revealed that the film will be shot primarily in England; apart from that no one is none the wiser as to the film’s plot or any other details related to its release.
Anderson has also teamed up with CrowdRise to offer one lucky fan the prize of all prizes; the chance to get involved in Anderson’s production itself! One lucky donor to the Martin Scorsese Film Foundation – which seeks to preserve and restore film heritage – will be selected to come on board whilst the picture is still in production.
“The top prize is an invitation to come visit us on our set where we’ll continue to be filming our story and even an opportunity to do a voice of, probably another dog, in the movie” said Anderson.
