We've all* been waiting for more news about the upcoming Wes Anderson film The French Dispatch, originally scheduled for release in 2020 and then removed from the schedule indefinitely due to COVID.
Earlier today, the film's social media accounts confirmed a few key pieces of news. The film is set to premiere at Cannes 2021 in July, and will also screen at NYFF in September.
It has also gotten a new release date of October 22nd, which is the same date that Edgar Wright's Last Night in Soho arrives in theaters.
THE FRENCH DISPATCH brings to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century French city. It stars Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Stephen Park, Bill Murray and Owen Wilson.
There have also been a few new stills from the film posted to social media today:
