"In my next film, the main character, who's a bit crazy, has a personal medium [mind reader] whose assistant is a teenager. I'll give the roles to more well known actors than the kids [in 'Moonrise Kingdom']. I'm still attached to my favorite actors even if I still don't know who'll play the main role in my next film," Anderson told French magazine Les Inrockuptibles.
So in essence, it seems Anderson's penchant for oddbal characters will remain intact for his next go round, though it looks like he's stepping somewhat (though probably comically) into the realm of the supernatural. And while Wilson is tipped for some kind of role, it remains to be seen if it's for the lead or a supporting character at this point. Either way, it looks like another promising venture from the helmer whose schedule is already getting busier. As you might recall, he's producing alongside Noah Baumbach the next effort from Peter Bogdanovich, "Squirrel To The Nuts," with Owen Wilson, Olivia Wilde and Brie Larson set to star. Shooting on that picture is gearing up to begin this fall, but hopefully it won't be another three-year wait until Anderson's next effort.
