Despite earlier reports, Johnny Depp will not be starring in Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. According to the Huffington Post, Anderson denied the news, laughing, “The Internet has a way of announcing things on its own. You will find that even though I’m very aware of the cast that has been announced on its own devices, you’ll never find me saying who’s in the movie. … In fact, Johnny is somebody who I would love to work with at some point, but he’s not going to be in this movie.”

Anderson did confirm that Bill Murray will appear in the film, though. So we have that going for us, which is nice.
