Filming Has Started For ‘Moonrise Kingdom’

bored-to-death Filming for the Wes Anderson movie Moonrise Kingdom started last week on Prudence Island of all places. I think it’s safe to say that the cast and crew were not bothered by star-struck fans and paparazzi during that part of the shoot. Other locations on the schedule include Jamestown, Newport, Lincoln Park; nothing slated for Providence at this time. The cast is ridiculously appealing with Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, and Jason Schwartzman (whose show Bored to Death is one of the funniest things on TV). Recently the call went out from a local casting company for a 12-year-old boy with knowledge of Morse code. That has Wes Anderson written all over it. (Where besides North Korea are there children who know Morse code?) More about Moonrise Kingdom at ProJo 5.6.11.
