Actors In Talks For Wes Anderson's Moon Rise Kingdom

Deadline reports Wes Anderson is moving forward with his next live-action film Moon Rise Kingdom. Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Francis McDormand and Anderson regular Bill Murray are in talks for roles. Co-written by Wes and Roman Coppola the film is set to start production in late spring. I would expect it to be released during fall of next year in time for awards season.

Set in the 60's 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 who’s also looking, and who is having an affair with the missing girl’s 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.
