Some new set images from ‘The French Dispatch’ have emerged thanks to Julien on Instagram. You can see the images in the gallery.
According to a French newpaper called Charente Libre viaIndeWire, director Wes Anderson spoke a little about the upcoming ‘The French Dispatch’. You can read the whole thing at the link and some highlights below.
Up until now, all that has been known about “The French Dispatch” plot is that the film is a “love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris.” Anderson said the secrecy around the film has been intentional (“When I shoot I do not want any advertising”), although he was willing to pull back the curtain a bit and explain the story in more detail.
“The story is not easy to explain,” Anderson said. “[It’s about an] American journalist based in France [who] creates his magazine. It is more a portrait of this man, of this journalist who fights to write what he wants to write. It’s not a movie about freedom of the press, but when you talk about reporters you also talk about what’s going on in the real world.”
“I do not know the release date,” Anderson said. “I never know, but I feel [it] could be ready before the end of the year.”
Anderson’s most recent release was last year’s stop-motion film “Isle of Dogs,” which landed an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature. Should the film land a 2019 release, it would most likely be at the end of the year during the holiday movie season. More likely is a 2020 release in late winter or spring, which is when “Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Isle of Dogs” opened.
In honour of spring, the site has a new look. The header was made by the awesome Ten Thousand Beats.
Since things are quiet at the moment, with ‘The French Dispatch’ just finished filming last week and ‘Dune’ starting up today, I decided to screencap and add ‘Call Me By Your Name’ DVD Extras – ‘Snapshots of Italy: The Making of the Film’ and ‘In Conversation with the Cast’. So check them out and hopefully some set pics from ‘Dune’ will emerge soon.

It now has detailed pages for all of his work in movies, TV and theatre, as well as a complete biography, fun facts and name meanings, so do check it all out.
