Scarlett Johansson joins Margot Robbie in the film that Wes Anderson will shoot in Spain

  • The star of ‘The suicide squad’ will share credits in this film with actors like Tom Hanks, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton y Adrien Brody.

Scarlett Johansson will be part with Margot Robbie of the brilliant cast of the film that Wes Anderson will shoot in Spain, the magazine said on Monday The Hollywood Reporter.

This isn’t Johansson’s first time working with Anderson, but it will be her first as an actress in front of the camera. Previously, he lent his voice for the author’s animated film Isle of Dogs (2018).

Johansson and Robbie, who released the hooligan superhero film this month “The suicide squad”, will share credits in this film with actors like Tom Hanks, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton y Adrien Brody.

In mid-May, the mayor of Chinchón, a small town about 60 kilometers southeast of Madrid, confirmed to Efe that Anderson had decided to shoot his next film there.

Filming in Spain

Although the film will be produced in Spanish territory, the plot “will not be about Spain,” Swinton said in statements to Variety.

Filming is expected to begin later this month.

Nominated seven times for the Oscars, although he has never managed to wear the statuette, Anderson is a filmmaker who owns an absolutely unique and recognizable aesthetic and is very loved especially among alternative audiences.

This year he presented his new film at the Cannes Film Festival, ‘The French Chronicle’

The film is a tribute to France, inspired by the new wave, which tells three stories related to the correspondent of an American magazine (similar to The New Yorker) that is on the brink of disappearance.
