Wes Anderson is shooting his 10th feature film in France

The director’s adopted home is his next location

Not long after the resounding success of Isle of Dogs, Wes Anderson is reportedly gearing up to work on his tenth feature film, on location in France. 

As reported by the New Republic, Anderson will be shooting in Angoulême, the capital of the Charente region in southwestern France. Production is expected to begin February 2019, and last four months. 

Though no casting or plot details have been released just yet, we do know that it’s set immediately after the events of World War II. Anderson is known for shooting his live-action films on location too, so it’s likely this next feature will be set in France – The Royal Tenenbaums was set and filmed in New York, The Life Aquatic around Naples and the Italian Riviera, and The Darjeeling Limited mostly in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.

The American filmmaker has spent several years living in France, but has never set one of his films there.
