It sounds as though Jeff Goldblum will be running with the pack in Wes Anderson’s next movie, a stop-motion animated tale centering on canine characters — at least according to the actor himself.
According to a Nerdist report, Goldblum dished about his participation in the movie during a recent performance with his jazz band, the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra. He also said Bob Balaban, Edward Norton, and Bryan Cranston would join him in the movie, which will be “Japanese-inspired.”
A spokesperson for Anderson declined to comment on the report, and a representative for Goldblum did not immediately respond to request for comment.
If the report pans out, it would mark Goldblum’s third collaboration with Anderson, following The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou and The Grand Budapest Hotel. The filmmaker is known for frequently working with a core group of actors, including Balaban and Norton. Cranston would be an Anderson newcomer.
Indiewire broke the news last Friday that Anderson’s next movie would return to the world of stop motion, which he previously explored via Fantastic Mr. Fox.
