Liev Schreiber joins Tom Hanks and visionary director Wes Anderson in southeastern Spain


Liev Schreiber makes the most of his Mediterranean surroundings as he joins Tom Hanks and visionary director Wes Anderson in southeastern Spain for currently untitled new film project


A small Spanish township provided the picturesque backdrop on Tuesday as work began on Wes Anderson’s currently untitled new film.

The Hollywood visionary has selected Chinchón, a heritage site some 50km south-east of capital city Madrid, as the home of his latest project, which is understood to have a ‘romantic’ theme. 

With work expected to continue for several months in the historic municipality, stars including Liev Schreiber, Tom Hanks, Rupert Friend and Anderson himself were seen familiarising themselves with its steep, winding streets.

Sporting a white  tee-shirt and matching shorts, Schreiber did not appear to be in character as he navigated the town’s famously narrow roads on a grey mountain bike. 

The 53-year old, a keen cyclist in his native New York, revealed strapping on his left knee as he made the most of his free time, hinting at an earlier accident. 

Elsewhere Oscar-winner Tom Hanks was also seen arriving in Chinchón after signing up for an expected lead role in Anderson’s new film.

Adhering to current health and safety guidelines, Hanks, 65, wore a protective face covering as he prepared to climb into a waiting chauffeur driven car. 

The actor’s precautionary measure was a necessary one, with both Hanks and his wife Rita Simons having both recovered from COVID-19 after contracting the potentially deadly virus during a trip to Australia in 2020. 

Anderson himself was later seen cradling young daughter Freya, five, his only child with partner Juman Malouf, as he made his way into a local hotel.
