Rights To Wes Anderson’s Isle Of Dogs Picked Up By Fox
Although production is currently underway in London, the movie takes place in Japan and follows the story of a young boy looking for his lost dog. Some names attached to the project as voice actors are F. Murray Abraham, Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, Edward Norton, and Bill Murray:
“Wes Anderson is one of the most talented filmmakers of his, or any other, generation. His ability to write smart and unconventional screenplays and then translate them into unique experiences on screen makes him not only a unique voice in film, but one who can truly bridge the gap between independent films and cross-over hits,” say Nancy Utley and Steve Gilula, Fox Searchlight Pictures Presidents. “We are thrilled to be going on a journey into the newest world from the distinctive imagination of Wes Anderson.”
Building upon the successful collaboration on The Grand Budapest Hotel, Anderson, Scott Rudin, Steven Rales and Jeremy Dawson return as producers while Fox Searchlight Pictures will distribute the film in partnership with Indian Paintbrush.
Indian Paintbrush is a motion picture development, production and financing company based in Santa Monica. It has a long history with Wes Anderson with Isle of Dogs marking their fifth collaboration.
