One of America’s finest filmmakers announced via a YouTube video on December 21st that his next film is officially in motion. Wes Anderson, director of films like The Royal Tenenbaums, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom and other quirky yet charming releases, will be making a stop-motion animated movie about dogs on an island.

The upcoming film will be called Isle of Dogs. To make these more fun and interesting, Anderson also announced that through CrowdRise, a funding platform, he will be holding a contest and raffle. Every user who purchases a $10 ticket entry will have the opportunity to voice the dog in the film. It’s a smart way to engage fans while funding your film.


Isles of Dogs has an all-star voice cast which features Bryan Cranston, Jeff Goldblum, Liev Schreiber, Scarlett Johannson and frequent Anderson collaborators like Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, and Edward Norton. No release date for the film has been announced.
