Speaking to Deadline about what he's got in the pipeline after his series of Roald Dahl shorts, the Asteroid City director teased that: "Well, before the Writer's Guild strike began, we had just finished a script. Roman Coppola and I had been working on a script. So, when the time is right again, we've got a movie to make with Benicio Del Toro."
And when asked who else he's got in his cast, Anderson revealed Cera's involvement.
"We have Michael Cera. He’s one of the other characters in this new story," the director explained.
"And he's somebody I probably met, I think, close to 20 years ago. At least 18 years ago, something like that. I met him with Harvey Keitel, so it must have been 2008 or something. But, anyway, Michael Cera. That's one."
Cera would have signed on before the strike action, however, given the strikes, whatever this project is it won't be out for a while, but Cera will be featuring in something new soon. Or rather, a new take on something old.
We're talking about Scott Pilgrim Takes Off, an anime retelling of Bryan Lee O'Malley's graphic novel series in which a pop-culture obsessed man has to defeat his new girlfriend's seven evil exes.
Cera and the rest of the cast from Edgar Wright's live-action film are all reprising their roles, and you won't have to wait too long for it to drop on Netflix, thankfully.
Asteroid City is not currently available on any subscription service, but plenty of Wes Anderson films on Disney+ for subscribers to enjoy. Barbie is still playing in cinemas.
