Wes Anderson announces next film, a star-studded stop-motion movie called Isle of Dogs


Win a small role in the film

Yesterday Wes Anderson release a video announcing his next movie, a stop-motion feature called Isle of Dogs. The movie will come out some time in 2018, released by Fox Searchlight.

Set in Japan, Isle of Dogs is about a boy's epic search for a dog. This will likely bring him to an island of dogs. Just a hunch. Andersonian twee will ensue.

Here's the special video announcement Anderson put out, which includes information on a contest involving the film.

That's right. The packed voice cast includes:

  • Bill Murray
  • Tilda Swinton
  • Bryan Cranston
  • Jeff Goldblum
  • Scarlett Johansson
  • Greta Gerwig
  • Yoko Ono
  • Edward Norton
  • Harvey Keitel
  • F. Murray Abraham
  • Liev Schreiber
  • Bob Balaban
  • Bud Cort
  • Akira Ito
  • Kunichi Nomura
  • Koyu Rankin
  • Akira Takayama
  • Frank Wood

And possibly you.

Working through Crowdrise, Anderson is holding a contest to benefit the Film Foundation, an organization founded by Martin Scorsese committed to worldwide film preservation. The grand prize winner will win a trip for two to London, a meet-up with Wes Anderson, a small voice role in Isle of Dogs, and one of the puppets used in the film. 75 other winners will receive signed Criterion Collection DVDs and books.
