Although this is not the first time Johansson has worked with the American auteur – she voiced the showdog Nutmeg in Isle of Dogs (2018) – it is understood to be the first time she has appeared in front of camera for the director.
Little else is known about the nature of the project – the plot of the film, and details of the characters, are being kept strictly under wraps – but hopefully more revelations will follow soon.
Anderson’s long-awaited The French Dispatch will finally hit cinemas October 22 after delays due to the coronavirus pandemic. The film premiered at Cannes Film Festival in July, receiving a nine-minute standing ovation. Let’s hope his next offering inspires a similar reaction.
