Wes Anderson’s new, Timothée Chalamet-starring film has a release date

The French Dispatch is coming this summer

Back in December 2018, it was announced that Timothée Chalamet would be starring in a new, live-action Wes Anderson film, The French Dispatch, and now we finally (finally) have a release date.

Anderson’s tenth feature film in the director’s chair will have a US release on July 24, 2020.

Earlier this month, Searchlight Pictures, the distributor of the film, also gave some further details on what we can expect (and no, it’s not over four hours long or a musical, as has previously been rumoured).

Instead, the studio’s synopsis reads that it’s: “a love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th-century French city that brings to life a collection of stories published in The French Dispatch magazine.”

Timothée Chalamet in Wes Anderson’s reimagining of 20th century France? Yes, please. 

And joining him will be a pretty incredible cast, reportedly including Saoirse Ronan, Benicio del Toro, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, and Jason Schwartzman (who co-wrote the original story with Anderson and other frequent collaborators Roman Coppola and Hugo Guinness).

If July 24 is too long to wait for your Timothée Chalamet fix, though, he will also be co-hosting this year’s Oscars, which will air February 9 (or February 10 in the UK).
