Bill Murray has joined Wes Anderson's latest film ensemble.

The 70-year-old actor will reconnect with the famed filmmaker after previously collaborating on nine movies, including 'The Moonrise Kingdom," 'The Royal Tenenbaums," and 'The Grand Budapest Hotel."

According to Variety, the Hollywood legend is set to star with Tilda Swinton in the as-yet-untitled picture, which will be shot in Spain.

Bill and Tilda, both 60, star in Wes Anderson's new comedy-drama 'The French Dispatch,' which opened at the Cannes Film Festival recently.

Lea Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothee Chalamet, and Owen Wilson all-star in the film.

Bill previously stated that he isn't hesitant to collaborate with Wes, despite the fact that he has yet to see his directorial debut, 'Bottle Rocket.'

After so many years of working together, the iconic actor also confessed that they've become great friends.

He elaborated: "Except for the one I haven't seen, I've had the great fortune of working with Wes on all of his previous films.

"It was an afterthought at first, but we've grown to be wonderful friends. He truly transforms filmmaking into an adventure. I used to be envious of those old-timers who traveled to Hawaii to shoot Hurricane and had to stay for five and a half months in order to get a good storm. That was real life. Back then, being a movie actor was a real thing. Wes' films, on the other hand, are very similar.

"We go to a location, take over a small space, and that's all you do for the duration of the film. There's nothing more important than making that movie and being around the people who are doing it."
