Saoirse has joined the cast of “The French Dispatch”, a new movie by director Wes Anderson! She previously worked with him in “The Grand Budapest Hotel” back in 2014, as well as with actors Léa Seydoux, Bill Murray, and Tilda Swinton, who have also joined his new project.
We thought there couldn’t possibly be any more casting announcements for Wes Anderson’s already thoroughly starry latest, The French Dispatch. But it turns out there’s one more name we didn’t yet know. Saoirse Ronan, who worked with Anderson previously in The Grand Budapest Hotel, has confirmed that she is indeed on the call sheet – although she didn’t reveal anything about the character she’s playing or the size of the role.
As well as Ronan and Anderson, it also marks a reunion for the actress and Timothée Chalamet, with whom she starred in Greta Gerwig’s excellent Lady Bird. The pair will also both be in Gerwig’s Little Women.

Anderson has already started work on The French Dispatch, his first live-action since Grand Budapest, after the stop-motion sidestep Isle Of Dogs. The new film is operating under a veil of typical secrecy, but is so far described as “a love letter to journalists” (thanks, Wes!) and set in the 20th Century in the Parisian office of an American newspaper (kids, ask your parents). Three discrete storylines will, we hear, weave their way around each other.
Benicio Del Toro and Jeffrey Wright are also in the cast, alongside some returning Anderson veterans Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Anderson regular Bill Murray, and we can just picture the Parisian party-crashing going on there. Rumours pointed to the possible involvement of Natalie Portman, Brad Pitt and Léa Seydoux, but there has been no confirmation on any of them just yet.
The film will shoot well into 2019 for a likely release in 2020.

EXCLUSIVE: Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan are attached to star in romance-drama Ammonite from God’s Own Country writer-director Francis Lee. Talk about prestige casting.
Widows and Lion producers Iain Canning and Emile Sherman will produce the film alongside Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly (Lady Macbeth). The pic, which instantly becomes one of the hottest projects in the works out of the UK, was developed by See-Saw, the BFI and BBC Films.
Set in a UK coastal town in the 1820s, the drama will follow the unlikely romance between palaeontologist Mary Anning and a London woman of means to whom she must unexpectedly play nursemaid. Production is due to start in March.
Lee’s Sundance darling God’s Own Country, about the romance between two young male farmhands, was a critical hit and a box office breakout in the UK. The festival favorite picked up a slew of awards and also was BAFTA-nominated.
Oscar winner Winslet is in post on Avatar 2 and is filming the drama Blackbird. Three-time Oscar nominee Ronan is onscreen with Margot Robbie in Working Title and Universal’s Mary Queen of Scots.
