Wes Anderson’s next film, the comedy-drama The French Dispatch, is finally set to premiere after several delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The project will debut at the Cannes Film Festival from July 6th to 17th, according to Variety.
The French mail order company follows the action of a foreign press office at a newspaper in Kansas. Benecio del Toro, Tilda Swinton, Saoirse Ronan, Adrien Brody, Bill Murray and Timothée Chalamet can all be seen in the film. It was originally supposed to arrive last summer but was moved to October before another delay in 2021. The French mail order is Anderson’s 10th feature film after the Isle of Dogs in 2018.
