Wes Anderson and Mark Mothersbaugh, the co-founder of Devo, have created a large quite the working relationship with each other this last decade. The Devo singer scored half of the Anderson’s films, such as Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. The two are now making their chemistry into a theme park.
Anderson wrote in Mothersbaugh’s book of visual art, Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia that will soon be released, “I hope to soon secure the means to commission the construction of an important and sizeable theme park to be conceived and designed entirely by Mark Mothersbaugh, for 40 years he has set about creating a body of work which amounts to his own Magic Kingdom, where the visitor is amused and frightened, often simultaneously.”
Let’s hope one day that we can ride a Fantastic Mr. Fox-themed ride while enjoying our stay at a hotel similar to that of the Grand Budapest Hotel.
