Back in November, secretive words first surfaced in regards to Wes Anderson's next film, Moonrise Kingdom. With little-to-no-word about the project since then, it's been announced that production is scheduled this spring in Rhode Island. The local casting agency LDI Casting has revealed that "Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, and Jason Schwartzman will join the already stellar cast of Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, and Bill Murray". The Bored To Death star is the only new name to be added to the list.
Moonrise Kingdom will focus on two young lovers (aged around 12-15 years old) who runaway from their New England hometown and the locals who go out searching for them. Willis may play the town sheriff who is having an affair with the missing girl's mother (McDormand). Murray, a regular in Wes Anderson's films, will play the girl's father, a man with his own set of heavy issues.
The screenplay was written by Anderson and Roman Coppola (who also co-wrote Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited). Moonrise Kingdom is aiming for a 2012 release.
