Scarlett Johansson is set to join Wes Anderson’s starry cast for his next film project, it has been announced.

Scarlett Johansson will be taking on a role in the ensemble of the next film to be made by Wes Anderson, it has been reported.

Anderson has The French Dispatch releasing in October, following a delayed launch, but the director’s attention has already turned to his next project which he is currently already shooting in Spain. And of course it contains a number of Anderson’s regular collaborators, including Adrien Brody, Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton.

We can now add Johansson to the ranks of Anderson’s regular players too, given that she narrated his charming stop-motion film, Isle Of Dogs. The cast for this as-yet untitled project is large and packed with talent, even by the standards of Anderson’s usual starry ensembles.

The actor will be joined by Tom Hanks, Margot Robbie and Rupert Friend as new members of Anderson’s coterie, and this marks another notable career step for Johansson, who seems to have firmly closed the door on future Disney projects following her legal action against the company. The actor’s casting in Anderson’s latest film is evidence (not that any was needed) that Johansson’s career beyond Disney will be unaffected by her legal battle.

It’s further exciting casting news and we’re interested to hear more details about Anderson’s film as we get them. The director is expected to complete shooting of the film in September, ahead of promotional duties for his next film, the delayed The French Dispatch's release in October.
