Moonrise Kingdom Kicks It Old School
This new photo from Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom features (from left to right) Bob Balaban, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Wyatt Ralff, Jake Ryan, Tanner Flood, Kara Hayward, Jared Gilman, Edward Norton, Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick, Charlie Kilgore, Gabriel Rush, Lucas Hedges, and Bruce Willis. It’s got an old-school look to it, and doesn’t it just scream “I’m a Wes Anderson Film!”?
Anderson directs, produced and co-wrote Moonrise Kingdom with Roman Coppola. Focus Features is planning a May 16, 2012 release.
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore — and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the boy and girl.
