Wes Anderson Adapts Roald Dahl Book

Director Wes Anderson has wrapped his adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s children’s book, “Fantastic Mr. Fox.”

Anderson wrote the script with Noah Baumbach, the screenwriter who helped write “The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.” According to the LA Times, they co-wrote the movie in the late author Dahl’s writing studio. The article includes some rocky stories from the film’s crew.

Here’s a quote from Anderson, from the article: “We wanted to make the movie an homage to Dahl … Mr. Fox’s study is based on the hut where Dahl used to write. Both the main farmer, Bean, and Mr. Fox are inspired by Dahl as much as they’re inspired by what’s in the book.”
