The Life Aquatic

Wes Anderson's latest is coming out in December. Starring Bill Murray and longtime collaborator, Owen Wilson, this $25M film is poised to make Disney (Touchstone/Buena Vista) a few bucks. Getting Cate Blanchett, Anjelica Huton, Willem Dafoe, and Jeff Goldblum on the set at that budget says something about the project. Early "buzz" is sounding positive from online sources. Compiling Anderson's social network in Hollywood shows how "ties" to others can broker & leverage talent and resources. Interestingly, this is the first script NOT co-written by Owen Wilson. Gwyneth Paltrow was slated to be on the project but had a conflict. The talented Blanchett was third choice. Jaguar shark. Trailer below.
