Wes Anderson has a longtime collaborator and four more stars ready to join him for his film.
Set in the '60s, "Moon" tells the story of a young couple who go off to be together, but folks in their small New England town are convinced they've disappeared. Norton would play a scout leader who leads his charges on a search party, Willis the sheriff having an affair with the missing girl's mother, played by McDormand, with Murray as the girl's father.

Anderson was looking for a 12-year-old boy and girl for the film, according to previous reports, which he planned to start shooting in the spring of 2011. This is his first film since the Oscar-nominated "The Fantastic Mr. Fox."
Anderson co-wrote the film with his "Darjeeling Limited" collaborator, Roman "Son of Francis, Brother of Sofia" Coppola. If you've never seen it--and we're reasonably sure you haven't, Coppola's lone directorial effort, "CQ," was a pretty fun and amusing, if imperfect, homage to '60s cinema.
