Now, it’s been announced that The French Dispatch will join the line-up of this summer’s Cannes Film Festival (which was also cancelled last year because of COVID). As reported by Deadline, all of the films that were on last year’s line-up will instead premiere at the festival this year.
The film is described as “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”.
While The French Dispatch has been waiting for its premiere date, Anderson has got to work on his next film. The as-yet-untitled project reportedly started filming this spring in Rome, with the plot revolving around a romance story.
