Wes Anderson is heading from Rhode Island to Europe for his next film, according to new reports. He unspooled his latest feature, Moonrise Kingdom, at the Cannes Film Festival this morning, where we enjoyed it, calling it a “return to the youthful vigor and real emotion on display in his earlier work.” No sooner does he have an update on his next feature, thanks to an interview with Harper’s BAZAAR (via The Playlist).
They revealed that Anderson is now halfway complete on his next script, although no details were given outside the location.

Stay tuned as we get more updates, while Moonrise Kingdom opens on May 25th.
