According to an interview with Anderson for AZ CentralThe filming process for the film is quite unique:
“This time we started with a recording session, we had Bryan Cranston and Edward Norton and Bill Murray and Bob Balaban and those, we spent a few days, the four of them and me, together. We was in a recording studio, although it was a recording studio in a wooden cabin, it was still a real indoor recording studio.”
Dubbing your upcoming animated movie in a chalet is the kind of nonsense you can only expect from Wes Anderson. It seems like a lovely time. In Cranston’s Collision interviewhe said the whole process was very relaxing, but at the same time, he admired watching Anderson work:
“It’s like we go into a bakery and get a croissant. We stayed very… ‘I’ll take that and that. Great, thank you.” And he was like, there, baking. He has a very different perspective on it because he has to have a meta vision of it, and we go in with a bit of a slice. “Okay. How about that? Okay, okay.” And he became a conductor. “A little more like this, and a little bit softer. It’s grown up now.” He’s running. “
In the opinion of some, the resulting film may be uncomfortable about cultural appropriation, but I’ve always wanted to hear that Bryan Cranston is having a good time. And if it were just for labor rights, working in two days to produce an entire movie would be a dream for anyone.
