Wes Anderson, 'Grand Budapest Hotel' Stars to Sail Atlantic Aboard Queen Mary 2
No, it's not a test shoot for The Life Aquatic 2 or a quaint new project set aboard a luxurious and impeccably appointed sea liner. Wes Anderson and some of his Grand Budapest Hotel stars are simply going for a victory tour.
The director, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman and regular Anderson collaborator Roman Coppola will set sail aboard the Queen Mary 2 from New York to London on June 13.
Fellow passengers aboard the ship, which is operated by Cunard Line, will be treated to a special screening of The Grand Budapest Hotel -- which has proved to be Anderson's most successful film, taking in $133 million worldwide since its release in March -- to be followed by a Q&A session with the filmmaker and cast.
Tickets for the journey range from $1,298 to $18,948.
