Isle of Dogs: A New Film by Wes Anderson


Madi Chute , Writer

Color schemes and troubled families. Recurring casts and tracking shots. These are all trademarks of a classic Wes Anderson film.

On December 21, 2016, Wes Anderson announced a new movie. It will be called The Isle of Dogs, and will be released in 2018.

Wes Anderson and his production team have just started filming for it in London, England. Like Fantastic Mr. Fox, it will be an stop-motion animated film.

It will also continue to have a lot of his recurring cast members such as Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, and Tilda Swinton. However, it is not the complete recurring cast as he is missing the Wilson brothers, Anjelica Huston, Willem Dafoe, and many more.

Some new and exciting actors that will be joining his new film are Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johannson, Kunichi Nomura, Yoko Ono, Greta Gerwig, Liev Schreiber, Edward Norton, and more.

Anderson also announced that he is connecting with CrowdRise to have a raffle for an opportunity to voice a dog in the movie and to tour the set. Through CrowdRise, with a $10 donation to enter, people can donate to Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation, which works to restore old movies. Anderson said, “Movies don’t last forever, sometimes they have to be brought back from the dead.”

His latest work was an advertisement for H&M for the Christmas season. It was called “Come Together” and it continued to bring his common elements of color schemes, continuous moving  shots, and a train.  It can be watched here:

Now we must wait until 2018 to see his latest film, but as usual, it will be a movie that will always be remembered.
