Timothée Chalamet is living the sweet life. 2018’s hollow-cheeked poster boy of arthouse cinema, now comes his indie crown: a role in Wes Anderson‘s next film.

Titled The French Dispatch, Anderson’s tenth feature film is set in Paris (where the director is based), with the cast reportedly working in southwestern France. According to Indiewire, the project will take place just after World War II and “is a love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris”, centred around three storylines.

Alongside Chalamet, the cast is chock-a-block with Anderson regulars, including Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, and Tilda Swinton, while Benicio del Toro and Jeffrey Wright also get their first taste of the Anderson universe. Oh, and Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, and Léa Seydoux are also rumoured to star, which would all be EPIC.
