Wes Anderson is busy wrangling together the cast for his next movie entitled Moon Rise Kingdom. In typical Anderson fashion, it will feature the usual suspects such as Bill Murray, and a few new faces. According to Deadline, several big name actors are circling the project including Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, and Bruce Willis, yes we said Bruce Willis!
Moon Rise Kingdom is a period piece set in the 1960s that centers on two young adults who fall in love and run away together. Their town leaders assume the worse, and conduct a thorough search that involves the sheriff (Willis), a boy scout leader (Norton), and the parents of the missing girl (McDormand and Murray). Just to spice things up, Willis’ character is also in the midst of an affair with McDormand, who’s married to Murray.
Edward Norton playing a scout leader? Count us in! Swinton’s role hasn’t been revealed but we’re sure she’ll play something equally of the wall like the rest of her co-stars. The script for Moon Rise Kingdom was written by Anderson and Roman Coppola. Shooting is scheduled to begin next spring with Anderson directing.
