If the information says Bill Murray will not participate in the end Asteroid Citythe next movie wes andersonThat in itself is news.

Moviegoers know it well -and Anderson fans much more-: Wes Anderson’s film and Bill Murray in the cast go together.

At this point, the inevitable question is why? What happened? They fought? No, as confirmed Variety, the reason for Murray’s defection is that he has Covid.

Sub: Murray out, Carell in

The legendary actor joined the project early in its development, but is now in post-production, so seeing Murray’s name omitted from the latest cast list was a bit of a shock. Instead, Steve Carell was hired to replace Murraymarking the first time the star of office works with Anderson.

According to Variety, Asteroid City is a “poetic meditation on the meaning of life” and tells the story of “a fictional American desert town circa 1955″. Key to the plot is everything that will revolve around the organization of the convention called Junior Stargazer”, an event that aims to bring together “students and parents from all over the world”.

But just as the absence of Bill Murray is news, like any self-respecting Wes Anderson film, its cast cannot miss a long list of actors who, even for brief cameos, cannot say no to Anderson.

The old ones and “the new ones”

Former regular collaborators like Tom Hanks, Ed Norton, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Scarlett Johansson, Jeffrey Wright, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, Hope Davis, Adrien Brody, Liev Schreiber, and Stephen Park They will be part of the great cast of the film.

In addition, Tony Revolori, the protagonist of Grand Budapest Hotel of Anderson, will also act. And we must also add “newcomers to the world of Anderson” as Maya Hawke, Matt Dillon, Hong Chau, Margot Robbie, Rupert Friend, Jake Ryan, Grace Edwards, Aristou Meehan, Sophia Lillis, Ethan Lee, Rita Wilson, and Jeff Goldblum they will also appear in the star. studded and massive cast.

And incidentally, the son of Francis, Roman Coppola

The film, written and directed by Anderson from a story of himself and Roman Coppola (son of Francis)will have the collaboration of the filmmaker of The Grand Budapest Hotel with Focus and Indian Paintbrush once again, following his work on Anderson’s 2012 comedy Moonrise Kingdom.

Asteroid City is produced by Anderson and Indian Paintbrush founder Steven Rales – over the years, the company has had a significant role in financing Anderson’s films – and Jeremy Dawson.

At the moment, the movie doesn’t have a confirmed release date yet, but considering they’re currently in the works, it looks like we’ll at least get that information sooner rather than later. As for a trailer, we may have to wait a bit longer.
