There has been one absence from all of the recent attention Wes Anderson’s seventh film, Moonrise Kingdom, has been receiving: It is the first of Anderson’s movies in which his roommate at the University of Texas and longtime creative partner Owen Wilson has not been involved either as a writer or actor.
Fans of the duo need not worry, however, as Anderson confirmed that he and Wilson will reunite for his next project. According to the Dallas Morning News, Anderson is already working on the script for his next film. Not surprisingly, it will feature a large ensemble cast, and one of the parts has been written for Wilson, who has agreed to be involved.
Wilson starred in Bottle Rocket, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic, The Darjeeling Limited and as the voice of Coach Skip in Fantastic Mr. Fox. He also co-wrote Bottle Rocket, Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums. Moonrise Kingdom, which will see a limited release May 25, is the first Anderson project that does not feature Wilson’s name in the credits.
