Following yesterday's confirmation of it's world premiere at this year's Cannes, Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch has just had it's theatrical release date confirmed by Searchlight Pictures for October 22nd.
It's obviously a long way from it's world premiere on July 6th, but the film will be making rounds in several film festivals beforehand including screening at the 59th edition of the New York Film Festival, which runs from September 24th to October 10th. Still, fans of Anderson will surely be happy to know his latest work will be available to see soon. The story focuses on one of three different storylines on the French foreign bureau of a fictional Kansas newspaper and will feature cinematography that will shift along with those perspectives including switching from black-and-white to color.
The French Dispatch stars Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Stephen Park, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Liev Schreiber, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, and Anjelica Huston.
