Wes Anderson Teases His Next Movie While Promoting Film Preservation

Wes Anderson Teases His Next Movie While Promoting Film Preservation

Dec 21, 2016

Wes Anderson just started shooting his next movie, Isle of Dogs, this week, and he's already got some footage to share. Of course, this is another stop-motion effort, like his Fantastic Mr. Fox, so the clip is barely a second long. In it, we meet Rex, a dog who'll be voiced by Edward Norton, and whom is apparently one of the main characters. 

You can find that footage within a new video of Anderson introducing the animated feature and naming the incredible voice cast, including Norton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Jeff Goldblum, Bryan Cranston, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Yoko Ono and Greta Gerwig. Norton also literally pops his head in to help out with the sneak peek. 

The video isn't just to promote Isle of Dogs. This is also an introduction to a campaign to raise money for Martin Scorsese's Film Foundation through Crowdrise. By donating to the cause of film preservation, you're also entered into a raffle for prizes including a visit to the set of the movie and a speaking part as a dog character.

You don't have to donate to enter, but if you do pledge a certain amount you can automatically receive a limited edition t-shirt or concept art print signed by Anderson, depending on the amount. You can also give $50,000 to buy the grand prize outright (maybe in addition to the raffle winner?). And at the minimum, every $10 given is another chance to win something.

Isle of Dogs, which is said to be "Japanese influenced" (multiple Japanese actors are among the voice cast), is expected to arrive sometime in 2018.
