Wes Anderson has directed this year’s Christmas advert from clothing retailers H&M.
The short film, titled Come Together, stars Adrien Brody (who previously teamed up with Anderson for The Darjeeling Limited, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Fantastic Mr. Fox) and sees the actor playing a train driver delayed by snow and preparing a festive surprise for his travellers.
“This story may resonate more than ever at a time in the world where we could all do with giving a stranger a hug,” Brody says of the clip.
“The winter train ride, under Wes Anderson’s direction, is the perfect setting for H&M’s holiday collection full of relaxed, wearable elegance,” said Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M’s head of design and creative director. “It’s about mixing the informal with a sense of occasion, capturing the holiday mood for both dressing up and getting cosy with loved ones.”
Meanwhile, Bill Murray has confirmed that he will play a dog in Wes Anderson’s next film. Murray described the film as “a stop motion animated kind of comedy sort of like Fantastic Mr Fox“.
Jeff Goldbum has already announced his involvement in the yet-to-be-named project, as well as Edward Norton and Bob Balaban. Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston is also reported to be involved.
