FOX Searchlight Pictures has announced that Wes Anderson’s stop-motion feature ISLE OF DOGS will be hitting the big screen on April 20, 2018. This marks the second animated film for the director, following the Academy Award-nominated Fantastic Mr. Fox back in 2009. Set in Japan, Isle of Dogs follows a boy’s odyssey in search of his dog.

Produced by Indian paintbrush, the film features a voice cast of F. Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban, Bud Cort, Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Jeff Goldblum, Akita Ito, Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Keitel, Bill Murray, Kunichi Nomura, Edward Norton, Yoko Ono, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Tilda Swinton, Akita Takayama and Frank Wood.

Nancy Utley and Steve Gilula, FOX Searchlight Pictures Presidents said:

“Wes Anderson is one of the most talented filmmakers of his, or any other, generation. His ability to write smart and unconventional screenplays and then translate them into unique experiences on screen makes him not only a unique voice in film, but one who can truly bridge the gap between independent films and cross-over hits. We are thrilled to be going on a journey into the newest world from distinctive imagination of Wes Anderson.”

Building upon the successful collaboration on The Grand Budapest Hotel, Anderson, Scott Rudin, Steve Rales and Jeremy Dawson return as producers, with Fox Searchlight Pictures distributing the film in partnership with Indian Paintbrush.
