Wes Anderson might get an awesome cast for Moon Rise Kingdom

Nov. 10, 2010by: Niki Stephens

When Wes Anderson decides he's going to do another film he has no problem finding a cast.

His next film MOON RISE KINGDOM has attracted several stars who are all in current talks to star. Who wants in? Oh just a few minor people: Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton.

Anderson wrote the script with Roman Coppola and will start production next spring.

Here's a rundown of the story and details on the roles:

"Moon Rise Kingdom 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 whos also looking, and who is having an affair with the missing girls 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."

Anderson and Noah Baumbach were planning another team-up, but I guess it will have to wait.

Extra Tidbit: Ed Norton and Bruce Willis in a Wes Anderson film? My head just exploded. Anyone else excited about this?

It's nice to see he's expanding from family (or at least a smaller group of people) to a whole community.

There's no better news than hearing Wes has a new movie coming out. I love a lot of filmmakers, but there's no other kind of upcoming project I look forward to more than a Wes Anderson one.

I hate Hipsters, and I'll stay on his nuts all fucking day long if I want to, thank you very much.

Besides, wouldn't true hipsters be turned off by Wes now that he's extremely successful & popular? Wait... are you a hipster!?

Anderson has a nack for picking great casts, and this is no exception. Not surprised Willis is playing a sheriff. Is it just me, or has Willis played more cops/agents than anyone in the history of film. I mean, he did it 3 times this year (Cop Out, Expendables, RED). Not that I'm complaining, because normally he's very good at it.

dont care about Willis.. Wes Anderson should do Ghostbusters 3. Think about it, stop motion animation, matching jump-suits and Bill Murray.. It would blow my mind.

FUCK YEAH!

While Wes IS an acquired taste I can't always agree with, on top of making what might've been the best movie of last year (have to think about it), there just ain't anyone else around quite like him. Bruce Willis is not an actor I would imagine in a Wes Anderson movie, but then neither was Gene Hackman.

Yeah, this is awesome. Wes Anderson can do no wrong and shows with each movie why he is awesome at what he does. Based off Wes, the cast, and premise, this movie just shot up to number one on most anticipated movies.

Owen Wilson AND Jason Schwartzman must make a cameo in this. Also, Luke Wilson.

And the big deal?

I've never seen rushmore or bottle rocket but seeing all his other stuff... I have to wonder what is so praiseworthy of this guy? He always gets a nice cast but the movie always sucks... his films are like ones movie snobs are just programmed to like just to have some street cred in the movie snob world.

You should tie a baseball glove to the top of your head whenever you watch a Wes Anderson film.

Well, many would argue that Bottle Rocket and Rushmore are his best films, so you definitely need to watch those first before outright dismissing his work.

Bruce Willis is one person

I never expected to see in a Wes Anderson movie, and I love Bruce Willis. You know Owen Wilson will at least cameo in this as well. Anderson has said several times that he never wants to make a movie without him.

This sounds great by the way!

That pic of Tilda Swinton is awesome.

I'm insanely excited for this, Niki. Best news I've seen in here in a while.

Isn't it just asumed that Bill Murray is in it?

I mean seriously, Bill Murray? In a Wes Anderson movie? Didn't see that coming (sarcasm)

Not crazy about Norton, but the rest of the cast is stellar. Can't wait for some new Anderson.
