An interview with Wes Anderson at the Huffington Post

News! about the Fantastic Mr. Fox project; Bill Murray is now involved

“George Clooney is going to be Mr. Fox. Bill Murray has a part. Jason [Schwartzman] is doing a voice. That’s our team,” he told me.

But don’t line up at the multiplex just yet…this one is still a long ways off. “It will take a couple years to do the animating,” said “The Darjeeling Limited” helmer, adding that they are about to record the voices. As for the animation, “It’s stop-motion. It’s like ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ or those Christmas specials. These [characters] have fur, so it’s not like claymation.”

GC links to the short film Hotel Chevalier, which wasn't showing up prominently in my itunes store (I was surprised). Got tickets for Saturday.
