Jason Schwartzman to re-team with Wes Anderson for Moonrise Kingdom
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
It’s undeniable that Wes Anderson has had quite the following since his first film in 1996 BOTTLE ROCKET, so when we heard that he was doing an new film entitled MOONRISE KINGDOM, of course we were excited. However, now we have learned that Jason Schwartzman, who is practically a staple in Anderson films, has joined the cast and now we’re really excited. Schwartzman will join a cast that includes: Bill Murray (of course), Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand and probably a cameo from another Anderson favorite Owen Wilson. The film follows a young couple in the 1960’s who are in love and decide to leave their small New England town without telling anyone which throws the entire community into a panic. Shooting is set to begin this spring in Rhode Island.
I don’t know what it is about Jason Schwartzman but I find him utterly charming and strange at the same time. I think his addition to this film will make it much better and has just shot MOONRISE KINGDOM closer to the top of my “can’t wait for in 2012” movie list.
