Wes Anderson’s 13-minute film Hotel Chevalier, which the director has stated is a prequel of sorts to his upcoming feature film The Darjeeling Limited, is reportedly not going to be running in front of Darjeeling when the film goes into theatrical release next month. This marks a change from Darjeeling‘s upcoming festival screenings, where Chevalier is scheduled to run with the feature.
Instead, it is speculated that the short will be available online and be included in Darjeeling Limited‘s eventual DVD release.
The short stars longtime Anderson associate Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman.
In the menatime, here is the trailer for Darjeeling Limited as well as two behind-the-scenes clips on the making of the film.
