No Limit of Talent for Anderson/Wilson in 'Darjeeling'

3 August 2006 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- The Darjeeling Limited > The Fantastic Mr. Fox > Wes Anderson > Owen Wilson > The Royal Tenenbaums Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson are looking to recreate the magic of their early careers in The Darjeeling Limited set to begin production in December. Owen Wilson, who had early success with Anderson in Bottle Rocket (1996), Rushmore (1998), and The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), has signed on to play one of three brothers who take a mysterious journey through India. Anderson has joined with cousins Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman to develop the script. The collaboration brings together two successful pair of film partners, Coppola and Schwartzman who most recently worked together on Marie Antoinette (2006), and Anderson and Owen whose last collaboration was on The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004). Coppola and Schwartzman have previously worked together on the 2001 French production Cq with Coppola writing and Schwartzman starring. The film followed a young filmmakers quest to produce science fiction features. »

Wilson Looked Into Joining the Marines After Film Failure

21 June 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood actor Owen Wilson almost joined the US Marines when his debut movie received the worst test audience rating in the history of studio Columbia Pictures. Bottle Rocket, directed by Wilson's friend and future The Royal Tenenbaums film-maker Wes Anderson, didn't impress viewers at early screenings in 1996. So Wilson decided to research a career in the military. Wilson tells American magazine Maxim, "The studio said Bottle Rocket was their worst-testing movie in history, so I looked into the marines. Maybe I was influenced by An Officer And A Gentleman. Or those marine commercials - they were so cool! Like a Led Zeppelin song come to life, full of people pulling swords from rocks and fighting lava monsters." »
