Director Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel) is making a new stop-motion movie about dogs on an island called… Isle of Dogs.
He made the announcement today via a YouTube video where he also announced his partnership with the funding platform CrowdRise.
There’s a very, short sneak preview of Edward Norton’s dog character in the video as well.
Anderson is hosting a raffle through CrowdRise where one winner will get to voice one of the dogs in the movie.
Each raffle ticket is $10 and proceeds will go toward Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation, which works to restore old movies. “Movies don’t last forever,” says Anderson. “Sometimes they have to be brought back from the dead.”
Isle of Dogs will star Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johannson, Tilda Swinton, Kunichi Nomura, Yoko Ono, Greta Gerwig, Liev Schreiber, Edward Norton, and more.
