Wes Anderson Needs 12-Year-Olds For Next Film

Wednesday, September 29 by

Bask in all the irony.

Hipsters everywhere will soon have a reason to not be indignant with the movies. Wes Anderson, their poster boy director, is in the midst of making a new film. There aren’t many details yet, but The Playlist discovered that Anderson is looking for a 12-year-old boy and girl to fill the lead roles. I’m sure he’s camera testing them in wide-angled, meticulously art-directed shots. 

I’m a much bigger fan of Anderson’s animated directing effort Fantastic Mr. Fox that I am of his live action films. Perhaps him shooting his next film with young leads means he’s staying in touch with his inner child. Of course he’ll have to cram Jason Schwartzman in there somehow, but he’s compact and doesn’t take up too much of the frame.
