Anderson denies Depp Hotel role
Johnny Depp will not be starring in the next Wes Anderson film
Wes Anderson has revealed that Johnny Depp will not be starring in his next film The Grand Budapest Hotel.
There had been rumours that the Pirates Of The Caribbean star would be appearing in the upcoming movie after Jude Law teased: "I have heard Johnny Depp is indeed playing a key role in it."
But the filmmaker told The Huffington Post: "You know, the internet has a way of announcing things on its own. In fact, Johnny is somebody who I would love to work with at some point, but he's not going to be in this movie."
Ed Norton, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton and Frances McDormand are rumoured to be in the cast of the film, which Wes has finished writing and described as a "Euro movie".
The Fantastic Mr Fox director is also said to be interested in reuniting with previous collaborators Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Adrien Brody and Willem Dafoe.
Jude has said to MTV.com: "I think my role is fleeting, but I'm very excited to be a part of that Wes Anderson family. I think we start work on that in January."
