Ralph Fiennes joins The Grand Budapest Hotel Movie

Oct 11 2012, 5:15am CDT | by

Ralph Fiennes has joined the cast of 'The Grand Budapest Hotel', but Angela Lansbury has checked out of the project due to scheduling conflicts.

Ralph Fiennes has joined the cast of 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'.
The 'Skyfall' actor is the latest big-name star to join Wes Anderson's comedy drama - which also looks set to feature Bill Murray and Jude Law - with the 49-year-old star in line to portray M. Gustave, who is the hotel's "perfectly composed" concierge, Variety reports.
But Ralph will not appear alongside Angela Lansbury in the forthcoming motion picture as the 'Murder She Wrote' actress is believed to have checked out of the project due to scheduling conflicts.
There are no confirmed details about the film's plot, but a number of star names have been linked the movie including Owen Wilson, Ed Norton, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum and Adrien Brody.
Wes has previously said the motion picture will be a "European story" and it is scheduled to be released in the US on December 26, 2014, but there is no release date planned for the UK as of yet.
The 'Moonrise Kingdom' helmer recently moved to quash rumours about Johnny Depp possibly appearing in 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' and while Wes confirmed Bill will star in the motion picture, he refuses to reveal any other names.
He said: "Johnny is somebody who I would love to work with at some point, but he's not going to be in this movie.
"You'll never find me saying who's in the movie, We have quite a great cast."

Wes Anderson’s THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL Goes LEGO Ahead of Its Blu-ray Release

Jun 13 2014 12:33pm CDT | Source: Collider

The Grand Budapest Hotel and The LEGO Movie will both be released on Blu-ray/DVD on Tuesday, so it’s fitting that the two worlds are combining for a LEGO Grand Budapest Hotel. Now before you get your hopes up, this isn’t a set that will be released for consumers (market research shows that kids might not buy products based on Wes Anderson movies; we are failing our children). However, it’s still a remarkable effort from Ryan Ziegelbauer and his team of eight model builders. They spent 575 hou ...

VOTD: ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ Built With Legos

A cryptic tease hit the movie press corp on Thursday: an image featuring a single pink Lego brick, and the name of Wes Anderson’s latest masterpiece, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Many – myself included – began wildly speculating about a collaboration between the indie filmmaker and massive toymaker on a consumer set. Alas, that’s not the case.
