Get ready for another film from the loopy mind of Wes Anderson! The writer/director is at work on his next project Moon Rise Kingdom, and he's attracting the likes of Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, and old favorite Bill Murray.
Set in the 1960s, Moon Rise Kingdom centers on young paramours who run away together and the aftermath of their disappearance. Willis is in talks to play the local sheriff who is having an affair with the girl's mother (McDormand); Murray will play the girl's father. As for Norton, he's a scout leader who enlists his troop to search for the couple. No word yet on Swinton's role, though I'm sure it'll be just as delightfully oddball as the rest of them. Although I loved last year's stop-motion Fantastic Mr. Fox, I'm pleased as punch to see Anderson direct actors again. The real question is: who will play the young couple in question?
