Tom Hanks is joining the Wes Anderson Cinematic Universe.
The beloved actor has signed on to appear in Anderson’s next film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In the meantime, after a pandemic-induced delay Anderson’s The French Dispatch is finally set to hit theaters worldwide on October 22nd. Taking place in a fictional French town in the 20th century, The French Dispatch centers on a foreign outpost of an American newspaper — the Evening Sun. The action brings to life the stories from the paper’s final issue, as well as the drama around the editorial staff of The French Dispatch.
