How Wes Anderson Made "The Royal Tenenbaums": An Excerpt from "The Wes Anderson Collection"

On Oct. 8, 2013, Abrams Books is releasing "The Wes Anderson Collection," a book-length study of the writer-director's seven films is anchored to a long conversation between Wes Anderson and yours truly. The book delves deeply into each of Anderson's movies, dissecting every angle and influence with commentary, illustrations, and photography. The Royal Tenenbaums chapter, excerpted today at Vulture, covers everything from finding the perfect Tenenbaum brownstone to Anderson's trademark shots to recruiting a reluctant Gene Hackman for the role of reappeared patriarch Royal. Follow Anderson's lessons to find out how to make a masterpiece of humor and melancholy. (And see a gallery of behind-the-scenes pictures from the Tenenbaums shoot here.)
