'The Grand Budapest Hotel' Director Wes Anderson's 90-Minute Chat
In just over a week, we'll see Wes Anderson's latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. The director behind The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and more has been making the publicity rounds (we'll have our own interview posted very soon), and he recently sat down with The New York Times for a 90-minute discussion on his career and more. One interesting fact includes Anderson's idea for a James Bond movie called Mission: Deferred where Bond doesn't get called into action because the Cold War is over, so he's just a guy, with a cool coffee machine. And that's just one small amusing part. Watch!
Here's the full 90-minute interview with director Wes Anderson, originally from The New York Times:
The Grand Budapest Hotel is written and directed by Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore) and tells of a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars and his friendship with a young employee who becomes his trusted protégé. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, the battle for an enormous family fortune and the slow and then sudden upheavals that transformed Europe during the first half of the 20th century. Fox Searchlight will release The Grand Budapest Hotel starting March 7th coming up very soon. See the latest trailer here.
