Angoulême ramparts caught director’s eye

Oscar-winning film director Wes Anderson is to make his next film in Angoulême, with work in the Charente capital due to start in February.

There are few details about what the director of The Grand Budapest Hotel is planning but he chose Angoulême for its ramparts and staircases and said the film will be set “just after the Second World War”.

He knows France well, having lived in Paris for many years and local newspaper Sud-Ouest said Angoulême was chosen after he visited in June.
