Margot Robbie, Wes Anderson

Margot Robbie is the latest star to join Wes Anderson’s next film

The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor will make her debut for the director alongside Tom Hanks, Tilda Swinton, and more

Given the trickle of teasers that we’ve received over the last couple of months, it seems Wes Anderson is assembling yet another all-star cast for his follow-up to The French Dispatch. The latest actor to join Anderson’s next production in Spain is Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star Margot Robbie.

Marking her first collaboration with the director, the supporting role (as described by the Hollywood Reporter) will see Robbie join Tom Hanks, another first-timer. 

As revealed in July, a host of Wes Anderson faves have also been confirmed, with Tilda Swinton set to star alongside Bill Murray and Adrien Brody (all three recently appeared together on the red carpet at the Cannes premiere of The French Dispatch).

Despite the frequent casting updates, details about Anderson’s new film are pretty scarce. In May, sets were spotted on the outskirts of Chinchón, Spain, with a mock train station and other landscapes prompting rumours that it’s a Western (though reports say it’s not technically in that genre).

Despite the Spanish shooting location, Swinton has also teased that the film is “not about Spain”.

Following long coronavirus delays, The French Dispatch is finally set to arrive in cinemas on October 22. Watch a preview — revolving around Timothée Chalamet and Frances McDormand’s characters, a budding revolutionary and a veteran journalist — here.

Margot Robbie, meanwhile, is also set to star in an untitled feature by David O. Russell, and will play the lead role in Greta Gerwig’s forthcoming take on Barbie, a role that Robbie notes comes with “a lot of baggage… and a lot of nostalgic connections”.
