Wes Anderson Wants to Shoot a Movie in Space
11.02.09 by REELZ
Just a few weeks ago, it was revealed that Wes Anderson disappeared from the production of Fantastic Mr. Fox and directed via email from a residence in Paris. This led to some not-so-nice words from crew members.
As if that weren't enough to convince us of Mr. Anderson's often-maddening idiosyncrasies, the 40-year-old director of The Royal Tenenbaums and Darjeeling Limited dropped this quote in a recent interview with Access Hollywood:
I'd like to do a movie in space. If possible I would like to try to actually shoot some of it on location in space. That's my preference.
Just for clarification: He's not talking about a movie that takes place in space; he's talking about a movie actually shot in space. We can only imagine the logistics of such a project. Would it be shot in zero-gravity?
We'll have wait to hear more about Anderson's astronomical ambitions. In the meantime, we can expect an original project from him in the near future, rather than another adaptation. "The next thing, I have an idea for something that's just my own," he said.
