As Wes’ next film Moonrise Kingdom heads towards its late Spring shoot, more cast members are being confirmed, and a Rhode Island casting agency has confirmed three actors for the film. As Deadline reported previously, Ed Norton and Frances McDormand will be among the sprawling, star-studded cast, and they’ve also confirmed Jason Schwartzman will have a role. The film will shoot in Rhode Island very soon.
