Wes Anderson’s forthcoming Moonrise Kingdom—which boasts an all-star ensemble that includes Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, and Frances McDormand—already had the requisite Bill Murray quotient, but you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s still not a real Wes Anderson movie for lack of Jason Schwartzman. So relax, gentle people: Schwartzman has officially signed on, and with a 1960s setting guaranteeing at least one Kinks song, and a subplot that involves Bill Murray playing a cuckolded sad clown, nearly all of the elements for a Wes Anderson film are now in place. As of now there are no Wilson brothers attached, and we’ve yet to see a single Futura font, but all these things in their time. [via /Film]
