Wes Anderson is developing another animated feature.

The offbeat auteur behind Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and most recently The Grand Budapest Hotel in 2014, is now working on Isle of Dogs. He let the news drop on Vimeo.

Here's what we know so far:

– This is Anderson's first animated feature since 2009's The Fantastic Mr. Fox.

– Confirmed voice actors involved include Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johannson, F. Murray Abraham, Tilda Swinton, Kunichi Nomura, Harvey Keitel, Akira Ito, Akira Takayama, Koyu Rankin, Yoko Ono, Courtney B. Vance, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Bob Balaban, Liev Schreiber, and Edward Norton.
