Happy holidays to Bill Murray fans and Wes Anderson fans alike.
Murray has joined the cast of Anderson’s new movie, in which the comedic actor, who starred in “Caddyshack,” “Ghostbusters” and “Groundhog Day,” among others, will play a dog, Indie Wire reports.
Murray has appeared in many of Andersen’s movies, including “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.” The currently untitled project will feature other familiar Anderson favorites, such as Jeff Goldblum, Bob Balaban and Edward Norton. Bryan Cranston has also signed on to star.
“He’s doing another, like a stop-motion, animated kind of comedy sort of like ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox,'” Murray told Indie Wire.
“And it’s a Japanese story, and I’m playing a dog,” Murray added. “I’m very excited.”
AS. ARE. WE.
There is currently no release date for the film, but here’s hoping it’ll hit theaters sooner rather than later.
