After the success of The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson is returning to the world of stop-motion animation.
The Playlist reports that Anderson’s next film will be another stop-motion animation film and will be about dogs. Anderson previously used stop-motion animation for his film, Fantastic Mr. Fox.
According to the site, the only plot details reveal that the project is about dogs. It is in pre-production now with other story details under wraps right now.
The site also mentions that Anderson wanted to make an anthology film in the vein of Victoria De Sica’s The Gold of Naples, which he recently presented at the Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival. Anderson said that this type of project is something he is really interested in.
“I’ve always been interested in this form of a movie that’s a collection of stories and often [anthology films] are uneven, usually there’s a different director doing each segment. It’s rare to see one that’s all one director’s work.”
Hopefully more details about the stop-motion movie will be revealed soon, but we have big money on Bill Murray having a role in it.
