Wes Anderson wants Outer Space

Hot off his new comedy, The Grand Budapest, Wes Anderson reportedly wishes to embark on a new type of voyage for his films; he wants to depart Earth and head for outer space. He recently joked: “I would like to try making a movie on location in space or on a nearby planet . . . I expect we’d end up somewhere with a good tax incentive at the end of the day.”

The Oscar nominated director is known for his off the wall style comedies, such as Moonrise Kingdom, and The Royal Tenenbaums. He’s also famous for sticking with actors he knows and feels comfortable working with, from the likes of Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and Willem Dafoe.

His unique style has been praised by the best of Hollywood. Veteran director Martin Scorsese apparently admires Anderson’s work and rates him among the best today. Filmmakers and audiences probably love Anderson’s work because his projects always seem to be unique and original, and he continually stamps them with his own perspective of the world.

One can only guess as to what to expect from Wes Anderson’s outer space. It will probably be rife with bright colours, wide angle lenses, highlighted ornate background details, and characters that are usually very dysfunctional, making for some very interesting comedy. If made, Anderson’s space project could be something to remember.

If you are craving a bit of Wes Anderson right now then his latest film, The Grand Budapest, which stars Ralph Fiennes, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Murray, Jude Law, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Tilda Swinton, and Owen Wilson (try saying that A-list cast in one breath) is in cinemas now.
