Wes Anderson is making a musical

Wes Anderson is putting the finishing touches on the plans for his next film and has picked the location for his 10th feature film.

In what will be the follow-up to this year’s stop-motion animation outing Isle of Dogs, Anderson has chosen Angoulême, France as the location to film his next movie. The new feature will mark the 10th film of the director’s career.

According to reports in France, Anderson is making a post-World War II musical and filming is expected to last at least four months and production is set to begin in February 2019.

Angoulême, located in southwestern France, is the capital of the country’s Charente department.

While flirting with French style within his work, Anderson is yet to set one of his projects in the country despite having lived there for a number of years now. His two most recent films Isle of Dogs and The Grand Budapest Hotel were both made in Europe with London’s 3 Mills Studios and Görlitz, Germany respectively.

Anderson’s 2019 production start would mark his 23rd year making feature films.
