Wes To Shoot New Film in Spring 2011

Various sources are reporting that Wes will shoot a new film in 2011. They all point to this tweet:

@ProdWeek Wes Anderson has begun pre-production on his next live-action project, the untitled feature is scheduled to begin filming in the Spring.

Update 10/01/10 Production Weekly has posted an update claiming the title of the film is Moonrise Kingdom. Discuss and speculate in our Yankee Racers thread.
