Wes Anderson has lined up an impressive cast for his upcoming feature, “Moon Rise Kingdom.” Deadline reports that Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton are all standing patiently in line for parts in the indie hero’s seventh film.
The script, written by Anderson and Roman Coppola, is set in the 1960s and centers on two young adults who fall in love and run away together. Members of their New England community, however, are convinced that they’ve disappeared and are determined to find them. Norton will play a scout leader, Willis the town sheriff who’s having an affair with girl’s mother, Frances McDormand. And Murray, no stranger to Anderson’s method, will play the girl’s father.
The film, likely to be financed by the production company, Indian Paintbrush, bankrolled by Steven Rales, will be produced by Scott Rudin and Anderson. Filming is set to begin late next Spring.
