In a piece of casting news that shouldn’t really surprise anyone, it’s been revealed that Jason Schwartzman will be starring in frequent collaborator Wes Anderson‘s next film, Moonrise Kingdom. A story over at Examiner (via GordonandtheWhale and RushmoreAcademy) reports that a cast list for the movie, which is set to shoot this spring in Rhode Island, confirms his involvement.

The cast already includes Frances McDormand, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton and Bill Murray, and is Anderson‘s first period piece. It centers on two young lovers in the 60′s who run away from their small New England town, leading to members of the town to go searching for them. A previous story indicates that the two leads will be young, likely around the age of twelve. Owen Wilson also hinted that he’d be appearing, although there don’t seem to have been any updates since »
