Henry Winkler Joins Wes Anderson's New Film THE FRENCH DISPATCH
At 73-years-old, Henry Winkler’s career is exploding and that’s all thanks to his role in HBO’s Barry, which is an incredibly well-made series!
According to THR, Winkler has joined the cast of director Wes Anderson’s upcoming film project, The French Dispatch. When I saw this news, I immediately wondered why Winkler and Anderson have never worked together before! This seems like such a perfect match-up of talent. At least it’s happening now and I’m looking forward to seeing what comes of it.
Winkler joins the previously cast Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Bob Balaban, Benicio Del Toro and Timothee Chalamet. Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, and Léa Seydoux are also rumored to be a part of the film.
The story for the film is set just after World War II and it’s “a love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris and centers on three storylines.”
The film is currently shooting in France. Are you a fan of the films of Wes Anderson and are you excited about this new film? I sure am!
