Jude Law drops hints about The Grand Budapest Hotel

Jude Law has revealed he will play an author in 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'.

The 'Anna Karenina' actor dropped hints about his new role in Wes Anderson's comedy drama - which has thus far simply been billed as a ''European story'' - and admitted the film will be constructed around several layers of ''storytelling'' involving his character.

He told Collider: ''I play an author. And there are sort of several sections. It's about storytelling. There's someone who plays me at an older age, and they're recounting how they were first told a certain story, and then you cut to me being told that story, and then you cut to the story. It's sort of layers of storytelling.''

Ralph Fiennes has already been confirmed to play M. Gustave, the hotel's ''perfectly composed'' concierge, while Bill Murray is thought to be attached.

Very little else is known about 'Moonrise Kingdom' director Wes' new project, except that it draws on his own experiences living in France and the main character ''is a bit crazy, and has a personal mind-reader with a teenage assistant''.

However, Jude has now let slip that the storyline will hark back to the 30s and revealed filming was already underway.

The 43-year-old actor told The Playlist: ''It's mostly set in the 30s, and my bit is set in the 60s. It's a tiny, tiny role. I've just done it. It was five days of work.''

Owen Wilson, Ed Norton, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum and Adrien Brody have all been linked to the feature, while Wes quickly quashed rumours last year that Johnny Depp was on board to star.
