Wes Anderson is in Cannes with the debut of his new film Moonrise Kingdom, but he is already looking towards his next feature. The director has explained in recent interviews that “it’s a film I want to make in Europe, a Euro movie,” saying that he has recently finished the script. He also says that the new film draws to some extent on the time he spends living in Paris each year.

And now we know that Moonrise Kingdom might be a one-time only break between Anderson and his perpetual collaborator Owen Wilson, who co-wrote Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, and The Royal Tenenbaums, in addition to playing roles in two of those films and The Life Aquatic, The Darjeeling Limited, and Fantastic Mr. Fox. Wilson will be playing a role in the as-yet untitled new film. Read More »

Matthew Weiner has taken a very unique path to feature film directing: write on one of the most popular cable shows of all time, then create another. Those shows are The Sopranos and Mad Men, and Weiner is using his cachet to finally put together a decade old passion project he could never previously get produced. It’s called You Are Here, and will now star Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis and possibly Amy Poehler. (She’s currently in talks.) Weiner will start shooting this May in North Carolina, once he’s wrapped this season of Mad Men. Read more after the break. Read More »

Tina Fey has had some seriously enviable onscreen suitors over the course of her career — James Marsden, Jon Hamm, and Matt Damon, just to name a few — and she may now be about to add Paul Rudd to that distinguished roster as well. Rudd is reportedly circling the male lead in Paul Weitz‘s Admission, a dramatic comedy based on the novel by Jean Hanff Korelitz. He would replace Owen Wilson, who was weighing the role earlier this month but has since moved on. More details after the jump.

When we first heard about Tina Fey circling Paul WeitzAdmission back in January of last year, we were midly surprised to note that the project seemed to be a drama. Considering that Fey’s known for stuff like Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, and Mean Girls, and that Weitz’s resume includes as many comedies (Little Fockers, American Dreamz) as dramas (Being Flynn), it seemed much more natural to assume that it’d be another funny film.

But Admission is indeed intended as a serious-minded picture, even as another star known for making people laugh has begun circling the project. Owen Wilson is said to be weighing a role in the film, which will begin shooting this summer. More details after the jump.

Wedding Crashers may have taken off because of its endless quotability — I remember a period in the mid-aughts when I couldn’t have a conversation with a college classmate without the film getting referenced at least once — but the reason it remains so watchable today has to do with leads Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson and their easygoing, lived-in chemistry.

Now, seven years later, the pals are set to reunite for Interns, a comedy penned by Vaughn. Vaughn’s Neighborhood Watch producer Shawn Levy is set to helm the picture for Fox. More details after the jump.
