    Wes Anderson has been behind some of our favourite movies ever, from Moonrise Kingdom to The Grand Budapest Hotel – and his new movie looks set to be incredible, if the cast is anything to go by.

    While he always has an all-star set of actors in all his movies, from Frances McDormand to Ralph Fiennes, Breaking Bad fans will be delighted to know that as well as regular Bill Murray, Heisenberg – whoops, we mean Bryan Cranston – will be appearing in Anderson’s newest movie. 
    There isn’t much detail yet about the new film, but apparently it’s an animated movie about dogs which has been called a ‘Japanese story’. As well as Murray and Cranston, voices will include Jeff Goldblum, Bob Balaban and Edward Norton.

    At the Marrakech International Film Festival, where he’s receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award, natch, Murray told reporters: ‘I’m playing a dog. He’s doing another, like a stop-motion animated kind of comedy, sort of like Fantastic Mr. Fox. It’s a Japanese story and I’m playing a dog. I’m very excited.’
    Remember that scary voice as Walter White told his wife ‘I am the danger’ or demanded that drug dealers ‘say my name’?
    Well, it’ll be coming to a screen near you. Thank you, Wes Anderson.
