Tom Hanks is joining the Wes Anderson cinematic universe. The two-time Academy Award-winning actor is set to appear in Anderson's next movie reportedly shooting in Spain.
It's reported that the two-time Oscar winner will be off to Spain to share air with the quirky clique including Anderson alums Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, and Adrien Brody. While we know the film will be written and directed by Anderson, the plot is still tightly under wraps. Sources say the role "is small and could be cameo-like in nature."
Details about the plot of Anderson's latest are being kept under wraps, but the film will no doubt be a meticulously constructed feast for the eyes, overflowing with hyper-stylized set design and framing. All those attributes were on full display this year at Cannes, where Anderson debuted "The French Dispatch".
Hanks recently starred in the World War II drama "Greyhound" for Apple TV Plus and earned an Oscar nomination for channeling Fred Rogers in "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood". He will next be seen as Geppetto in a live-action version of "Pinocchio" that is set to premiere on Disney Plus and as Colonel Tom Parker in Baz Luhrmann's untitled film about Elvis Presley.
