It's been a while since we had an update on Wes Anderson's next film project Moonrise Kingdom. The last we heard Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton were in talks to be cast as characters in the movie.
Some information has come to light confirming the films cast, and according to the local Rhode Island casting agency, Ed Norton, Frances McDormand, Jason Schwartzman, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton and Bill Murray have all been officially cast. Schwartzman is the new name on the list, but not surprising, after all he's in all of Anderson's movies.
The screenplay was written by Anderson and Roman Coppola who also co-wrote The Darjeeling Limited, and the film is preparing to shoot this spring in Rhode Island.
I'm a huge fan of Anderson's films and I'm looking forward to seeing how this one turns out. Here's a description of the story that was previously released.
[The Story] is set in the 60s. Two young adults fall in love and run away. Leaders in their New England town are sticking the idea that they've disappeared and go in search of them. Norton will play a scout leader who brings his charges on a search. Willis is in talks to play the town sheriff who’s also looking, and who is having an affair with the missing girl’s mother, the role McDormand is in talks to play. Murray, a regular in Anderson films, will play the girl's father, who has his own issues.
