Wes Anderson Shockingly Casts Bill Murray in New Movie ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’


Ever since they first worked together on Rushmore way back in ‘98, Bill Murray has been a sort of good luck charm for director Wes Anderson, who hasn’t made a movie without Murray since. It’s no surprise that Murray just announced, in a recent Vulture profile, that he’s just been cast in Anderson’s new film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, which will be their seventh movie together and will see Murray starring alongside Johnny Depp and Jude Law, two newbies to The World of Wes Anderson. Hot on the heels of Anderson’s last movie, this summer’s critical and commercial hit Moonrise Kingdom, Budapest Hotel is set to start filming in Germany soon, but plot details are currently under wraps. Let’s just hope Bill Murray never stops being the Cliff Clavin to Wes Anderson’s Pixar.
