Wes Anderson is returning to real life -- but traveling back in time -- for his next major film.
The "Rushmore" and "Royal Tenenbaums" filmmaker, who last put out the stop motion animated "Fantastic Mr. Fox," will co-write and direct the 1960s-set "Moonrise Kingdom," the Playlist reports. He's already announced a stellar cast for the project, with Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton set to star.
The story centers on a pair of 12-year olds (newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward) who fall in love and run away from their New England island town. That prompts a major search, led by the Sheriff (Willis) and the girl's parents (Murray, McDormand).
Just picked up by Focus Features, the film marks Anderson's first effort with Willis, Norton, McDormand and Swinton. Schwartzman and Murray starred in his second film, 1998's "Rushmore," while Murray featured and starred in "The Royal Tenenbaums" and "The Life Aquatic," respectively. Schwartzman was one of three leads, along with Adrien Brody and Owen Wilson, in Anderson's last live action film, "The Darjeeling Limited."
