Angela Lansbury Confirmed For Wes Anderson's 'Grand Budapest Hotel'

It seems what Wes Anderson wants, Wes Anderson gets. Earlier this summer, with "Moonrise Kingdom" doing solid business in theaters, the writer/director started putting the pieces together for his next film, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," eyeing Johnny Deep, Jude Law and Angela Lansbury as potential players alongside his usual roster of actors such as Bill Murray, who recently confirmed he'll be taking part. Depp and Law are both on board, and another wish is coming true for Anderson.

It seems what Wes Anderson wants, Wes Anderson gets. Earlier this summer, with "Moonrise Kingdom" doing solid business in theaters, the writer/director started putting the pieces together for his next film, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," eyeing Johnny Deep, Jude Law and Angela Lansbury as potential players alongside his usual roster of actors such as Bill Murray, who recently confirmed he'll be taking part. Depp and Law are both on board, and another wish is coming true for Anderson.

Bona fide legend and the always excellent Angela Lansbury has revealed she too will be featuring in the film. “I’m playing woman of mystery, it’s minuscule role. I’m on the screen probably for less than 5 minutes,” the "Murder, She Wrote" star told U.K. magazine The Gentle Woman (via The Film Stage).

Details are still under wraps about the movie, the only information at the moment being that it's a Euro-based tale (as shooting in Germany and the title would suggest), with one character being a psychic medium. But Depp + Law + Murray + Lansbury? Damn, Anderson could stop there and we'd be ready to buy a ticket. "Moonrise Kingdom" team Scott Rudin and American Paintbrush are behind this one as well. Could we see back-to-back movies from Anderson? Fingers crossed.
