If you loved Wes Anderson’s Rushmore, you’re sure to be looking forward to his next film, The Royal Tenenbaums, about a dysfunctional family of geniuses who wind up as adults living under the same roof.

Gene Hackman has just signed on as one of the family members. He’ll be joining Ben Stiller, Gwyneth Paltrow, Owen and Luke Wilson and Bill Murray. The film is written by Anderson and Owen Wilson. Shooting should begin in March.
