‘4000 Miles’ to postpone

As reported before, West End has been closed down due to coronavirus. And as assumed before, it has now been confirmed that ‘4000 Miles’ has been postponed. You can also see an image from rehearsals that had been going on in the gallery.

It is with great sadness that we are temporarily closing The Old Vic in line with the latest government advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19) and postponing our production of Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles until theatres are able to re-open.

If you have tickets you don’t need to do anything at this point – we will be in touch as soon as we can with more details about the new performance dates.

Be on the look-out for pastels and whimsy this summer, as Searchlight Pictures has officially set a release date for Wes Anderson‘s new movie, The French Dispatch. The hyper-symmetric auteur will bring his latest film to theaters on July 24, 2020, and he’s bringing one heck of an ensemble with him.

The studio confirmed today that, in addition to Anderson regulars Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and Adrien Brody, The French Dispatch also stars Benicio del Toro, Tilda Swinton, Lea Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothee Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, and Stephen Park. Prior reports of the film being a musical turned out to be false—and it’s not four hours long, either—and for a while the only synopsis we had painted the story as “A love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th century Paris and centers on three storylines.”
