Jason Schwartzman on board for 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'
Wes Anderson has forged a number of lasting relationships during his career that have led to the same actors appearing in many of his films. Bill Murray and Owen Wilson are just two of the most prominent, but perhaps what we think of first and foremost is his association with Jason Schwartzman. The two have been close ever since Rushmore, and have worked together on four projects already. Now you can add one more.
Schwartzman has confirmed that he will indeed be a part of Anderson's next film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. He tells Movies.com...
Schwartman: "I'm going to be in it. Yes, I'm going to be in it. I'm playing Cousin Ben [referring to his 'Moonrise Kingdom' character]. No, I'm just kidding -- wouldn't that be crazy? No, but I'm excited about it. I'm very excited about it. It's a beautiful movie."
No surprise here. Schwartzman joins Murray, Wilson, Jude Law, and Ralph Fiennes in a Euro-set story that involves a psychic concierge in some capacity. Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton, and Adrien Brody are expected to join the production when filming begins in Germany.
