What Happened To My Sweet Boy

They say you shouldn't speak ill of the dead (although if somebody would give me a microphone at George Bush's funeral I'd sure test that theory) -- in a similar vein you probably shouldn't speak ill of 90 year old Oscar winners either, so I've been pleading "no comment" to James Ivory's snide comments about the Call Me By Your Name sequel. Although for a man so creatively talented you'd think he'd have a little more imagination on hand? Seems to me you shouldn't cast aspersions at a man who just did the impossible and re-wired the entire way a lot of us think about the concept of "the remake" with Suspiria. But I digress! Go with god, James Ivory; we're not here to talk about him anyway. No we're here because...
... of this weekend's very exciting news that Timmy's going to star in The French Dispatch, which is the just revealed title of Wes Anderson's next movie, which we've been hearing about for a bit now. There was a rumor for awhile it was going to be a musical but a producer dispelled that a couple of weeks ago - for now what we know is it is "a love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris and centers on three storylines." Oh and did we mention the other names officially attached so far are Wes regulars Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, and Tilda Swinton (!!!), plus Benicio del Toro and Jeffrey Wright. This being a Wes Anderson movie there will surely be more to come - there have been longstanding rumors about Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman, for instance. But for now I'm just praying Timmy shares scenes with Tilda, because I need this Luca-verse Cross-over if Luca's not willing to do it himself.

I thought he was doing the remake of Dune right now.
