Wes Anderson’s Next
Film on the Horizon

Nov 11, 2010

Fantastic news for Wes Anderson fans: the auteur’s next project appears to be lined up—and actors are already lining up for it. Deadline.com has reported that Anderson is set to begin production in late spring 2011 on the sixties-set Moon Rise Kingdom (written by Anderson and Roman Coppola), concerning two young lovers who run away and the adult leaders of their small New England town who try to track them down. It comes as no surprise that Bill Murray has been named as part of the cast, but the others currently attached are head-turning: Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Bruce Willis, and Tilda Swinton. Moon Rise Kingdom, which will be Anderson’s first live-action film since 2007’s The Darjeeling Limited, is to be produced by Scott Rudin, who has worked on every Anderson title since The Royal Tenenbaums.
