Composer Alexandre Desplat -- who had a busy year in 2012, with three original scores qualifying for Oscar consideration -- is on board for director Wes Anderson's upcoming project "The Grand Budapest Hotel." This will be Desplat and Anderson's third collaboration following "Moonrise Kingdom" and "The Fantastic Mr. Fox."

"The Grand Budapest Hotel" already boasts a slew of Anderson regulars, including Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Edward Norton, plus  Saoirse Ronan, Jude Law and Ralph Fiennes. Anderson hasn't revealed much about the film, but we know that it is set in a 1920s Hungarian hotel and is partly inspired by the films of Ernst Lubitsch; the classic-era screwball director often recreated Europe with studio sets and backlots.

Desplat's music was heard in 2012's "Argo," "Zero Dark Thirty," "Moonrise Kingdom," "Rust and Bone" and "Rise of the Guardians." He has been nominated for four Oscars over the course of his career: 2010's "The King's Speech," 2009's "Fantastic Mr. Fox," 2008's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and 2006's "The Queen."
