the darjeeling limitedEntertainment Weekly has released the first photos from Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited. The Rushmore director is telling fans “You can’t trust what you read on the internet” in response to a plot description which has been circulating the web for months. According to the web description, the story follows three brothers who trek through India to find an albino tiger that’s actually their reincarnated father.

“They’re not searching for a tiger,” Anderson told EW.

the darjeeling limitedI wonder if Anderson is just trying to inject a little misdirection, as I know the film’s script has been passed around on the online trading message boards. Or may-be that’s just an earlier version? Anderson will only say that this film is “more raw” than his previous efforts and that it “takes various elements from the movie and distorts them.”

Tiger or no Tiger, I was sold at the mention of “Wes Anderson’s next film”. And it helps tat the estranged trio consists of Jason Schwartzman, Adrien Brody and Owen Wilson.

Oh, and you can click on the images for n enlarged view. The movie is set to hit theaters on December 25th 2007.

The Darjeeling Limited Movie Poster

Update: Apparently the poster is just a creation of NataliePortman.com, and is not real.

One day after the screenplay mysteriously found its way onto the internet, out friends at FilmIck have a first look at the movie poster for Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited. I love the film’s tagline “She Almost Definitely Changed The World”. It’s very Wes Anderson-ish. Click on the poster for a slightly better view.

Written by Anderson, Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman, the story follows the journey of three brothers (played by Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman) who take a train (The Darjeeling Ltd) through India in search of a rare albino tiger that was believed to be the reincarnation of their recently deceased father. The brothers intend the trip as a spiritual journey, a search for the tiger, and a chance to bond with each other. But things go wrong – they get kicked off the train, at which point they begin to learn much more about themselves and the country than they ever expected to. The film also stars Amara Karan, Natalie Portman, and Angelica Huston.

The Darjeeling Limited is scheduled to hit theaters on December 25th 2007.

The Darjeeling Limited

Wes Anderson’s next movie, The Darjeeling Limited is being screened for test audiences right now (a review on AICN has mysteriously disappeared). The film’s screenplay has been leaked onto the internet. We haven’t read it, but we’re hoping it’s better than The Life Aquatic (we enjoyed his last movie but it paled in comparison to his previous efforts). You might want to check out the script over at NataliePortman.com, before it disappears too.
