Wes Anderson, the director who gave us The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Darjeeling Limited, and The Fantastic Mr. Fox (among others), announced that he has begun making his second stop-motion animated movie called Isle of Dogs. In the same announcement, he says that he has partnered up with the funding platform CrowdRise.
Not much is known about Isle of Dogs just yet, just that it has one hell of a cast list already lined up, Edward Norton included. He’s playing the lead role. There’s a teeny tiny, briefest of brief sneak preview at Norton’s character, as well. To Norton’s disappointment.
Also starring in the film are Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johannson, Tilda Swinton, Kunichi Nomura, Yoko Ono, Greta Gerwig, Liev Schreiber, and more.
Through CrowdRise, Anderson is hosting a raffle, from which a single winner will be chosen to voice a dog in the movie. Each raffle ticket entry is $10. The proceeds from the raffle will go to Marin Scorsese’s Film Foundation, an organization that works to restore old movies back to their former glory.
“Movies don’t last forever,” Anderson says in the video. “Sometimes they have to be brought back from the dead.”
