Johnny Depp is to star in The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson’s follow-up to critical smash Moonrise Kingdom, reports Deadline.
With Anderson’s Cannes opener having performed admirably at the box office with a return of $40m, the film-maker is moving on to his next project, which he has previously described as “not family friendly”. Depp looks likely to join the cast once he has completed shooting The Lone Ranger for Gore Verbinski.
