First trailer for Wes Anderson's 'The French dispatch' (VIDEO)

The movie, set in Paris, will star Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Lea Seydoux, Mathieu Amalric and Cécile de France (whew!) and will be released July 24.

Although set in Paris in the 1950s, Wes Anderson's upcoming film The French Dispatch was mostly shot in the city of Angoulême, located in the South-West of France. The cast features an incredible mixture of Hollywood and French movie stars including Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Timothee Chalamet, Willem Dafoe, Bill Murray, Christoph Waltz, Elisabeth Moss, Léa Seydoux, Guillaume Gallienne, Vincent Lacoste and Cécile de France.


Wes Anderson, who kept the story of his film very secretive told Charente Libre “[It’s about an] American journalist based in France [who] creates his magazine. It is more a portrait of this man, of this journalist who fights to write what he wants to write. It’s not a movie about freedom of the press, but when you talk about reporters you also talk about what’s going on in the real world.”
