This seems to be a match made in heaven. Johnny Depp in a Wes Anderson film? In a movie about a what sounds like a super fancy artsy hotel?
I can see the trailer now. Depp in a slow motion portrait reaction shot, other stuff, then The Grand Budapest Hotel written on the screen in big, yellow type. Ooh, the majesty of it all. No word on what this movie is about, but it will likely involve family trouble, because Anderson loves making movies about dysfunctional families.
I’m kind of hoping it’s like the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Hotel at Disney’s California Adventure, but it’s likely to be more whimsical and magical rather than terrifying and creepy. It’ll be like The Darjeeling Limited in a hotel! [Deadline via FilmDrunk]
