The cast list for Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel just keeps getting … well, grander. /Film confirms that Anderson has cast Saoirse Ronan, the young star of Hanna and Atonement, as the star of his latest ensemble work.

Although there’s no indication yet about who Ronan will play, she joins a remarkable ensemble, including Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law, Angela Lansbury and Bill Murray. She’s also definitely in a starring role, not a cameo.

Ronan has quite a list of films lined up, including a starring role in Mary Queen of Scots. Working with a director of Anderson’s caliber can only advance her career.

The cast for Anderson’s latest effort has been in flux, with the greatest disappointment – for me at least – coming when Johnny Depp’s name was dropped from the cast list. A lot of the casting news have been mostly concerning cameos from big name stars, »
