Cameos for the musicians have also been announced Seu Jorge And Jarvis Cocker who will play cowboys, but it remains to be seen if they survive the editing.
Set in a fictional American desert city around 1955, the film tells of a bizarre encounter. Here’s what the official synopsis of the film reads: “The itinerary of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention (organized to bring together students and parents from all over the country for scholarships and academic competition) is spectacularly upended by events capable of changing the order of the world.”
Anderson wrote Asteroid City with Roman Coppola which is produced by the regular partners Steven Rales And Jeremy Dawson. Focus has set the US release for June 16, and the trailer for the film arrives tomorrow.
Anderson was previously at Coisette with The French Dispatch And Moonrise Kingdomboth in competition.
