Director Wes Anderson on Bill Murray, getting started as a filmmaker, and 'Star Wars'

Moonrise Kingdom

From Rushmore to The Royal Tenenbaums, Wes Anderson has distinguished himself as one of our most innovative filmmakers. Mike Fleming, Jr. at Deadline Hollywood has posted a lengthy interview with Anderson, covering his most recent film, Moonrise Kingdom, along with a variety of other topics. If you'd like to hear Anderson talk about working with Bill Murray, the help Jim Brooks gave him early in his career, or how well Anderson thinks he would do directing a Star Wars film, it's well worth the read.
