Wes Anderson, the director of cult classic Rushmore and 2001 hit The Royal Tenenbaums, is headed to the subcontinent. He will direct Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman as three brothers who journey through India in The Darjeeling Limited. Production Weekly reports that filming begins in December.

Meanwhile, casting director Cindy Tolan is scouring the South Asian community for a young woman to play Rita, an “attractive, intelligent and articulate” stewardess on a train in India. This may be your chance to become the next Ash—no experience is necessary for the role. The actress-to-be should be in her mid-20s to mid-30s, speak English and preferably Hindi, as well. Email dlcasting@gmail.com with a letter and headshot to apply.

    Aww shucks. I knew I should have paid more attention when mom watched Bollywood movies…I wonder if he’d go for Bengali instead.
