The Cast of Wes Anderson's Next Film (Yes, Bill Murray's There)

November 11, 2010


Who's going to be deadpanning in Wes Anderson's next film? Let me tell you who. Showing the impressive "not all that commercially successful yet still able to draw whatever acting talent he wants" auteur ferocity of a modern-day Woody Allen, the director has so far managed to get Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and, obviously, The Great Bill Murray to join his latest, Moon Rise Kingdom.

Deadline has some more pertinent information for you:

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 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.

Shooting is expected to begin late next spring, so, depending on how central Murray's role is, we may have to push back Ghostbusters 3's fictional start date to another made-up time.
