Ralph Fiennes checks into Wes Anderson’s ‘Hotel’

'Skyfall' actor in talks to star in director's next film

After several serious turns in “Coriolanus,” “Great Expectations” and Sam Mendes’ upcoming James Bond pic “Skyfall,” two-time Oscar nominee Ralph Fiennes is in talks to star in writer-director Wes Anderson’s next film “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”

Anderson is producing the Euro-set pic with his “Moonrise Kingdom” collaborators Scott Rudin and Steven Rales of Indian Paintbrush.

Fiennes is making a deal to play a character named M. Gustave, who serves as the hotel’s perfectly composed concierge.

While Anderson is fond of working with the same troupe of actors including Bill Murray, who is expected to appear in “Hotel,” he has actively recruited actors he’s never worked with before, including Jude Law.

Fiennes will soon be seen alongside Daniel Craig in “Skyfall,” which Sony opens Nov. 9. He also plays Magwitch in Mike Newell’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ novel “Great Expectations,” which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. Additionally, Fiennes plays Dickens opposite Felicity Jones in “The Invisible Woman,” which he also directed.

Released by Focus Features back in May, “Moonrise Kingdom” has grossed $63 million worldwide.

Fiennes is repped by CAA and Dalzell and Beresford.
