The Timothée Chalamet-starring film, previously pushed back to October due to coronavirus, is now listed as ‘unset’ on Disney’s calendar of new releases
Back in April, we got the disappointing news that the release of Wes Anderson’s new film, The French Dispatch, would be pushed back to October 16 due to coronavirus. Now, it seems we might be waiting even longer, as Disney has rescheduled the film once more.
In fact, there’s now no release date in sight, with The French Dispatch listed as “unset” on Disney’s calendar, along with the studio’s huge release of its live-action Mulan reboot, as reported by Deadline.
Originally slated to premiere July 24, the film promises performances from Timothée Chalamet, Bill Murray, Saoirse Ronan, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Elisabeth Moss, and many more film industry icons, in three storylines that intersect with the eponymous magazine in a fictional French town.
A trailer released in February gives more insight into what to expect (watch below).
Even though The French Dispatch doesn’t yet have a new release date, you can still get your fill of Wes Anderson content during the pandemic (sort of). The director has shared multiple lists of film recommendations from lockdown, as well as his original, personally-narrated animatic for the opening scenes of The Grand Budapest Hotel.
