Jude Law has revealed that he will be starring in Wes Anderson's upcoming film, reportedly titled The Grand Budapest Hotel.

The Anna Karenina actor, who had been rumoured for a role, confirmed he is officially on board, alongside Johnny Depp, Ed Norton, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton and Frances McDormand.

"He sent me this wonderful script. I think we start work on that in January," he told MTV.com.

"It will be the usual team [of actors]. I have heard Johnny Depp is indeed playing a key role in it. I think my role is fleeting, but I'm very excited to be a part of that Wes Anderson family."

Jude revealed that the forthcoming role fulfils a long-held dream.

"I've been a huge fan of Wes. I pestered him with emails for years, saying: 'I want to live in one of your films and I'd like to be in one of your films'," he added.

Wes will write, direct and produce the new film, which he recently revealed he has finished writing and described as a "Euro movie".

The Fantastic Mr Fox director is also said to be interested in reuniting with previous collaborators Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Adrien Brody and Willem Dafoe.

A new set of rules will allow you to move forward with a brilliant plan. You'll get the full support of an influential executive who is tired of the old guard.More
