Bill Murray has joined director Wes Anderson once again, this time for "Moonrise Kingdom," which is set for release in the United States on May 25, 2012.

"Moonrise Kingdom" follows two twelve-year-olds, who fall in love, make a pact and run away together into the wilderness of New England in the summer of 1965. Varying authorities battle in their quests to track down the young lovers, including the local sheriff (Bruce Willis), the Khaki Scout troop and troop leader (Edward Norton) and the girl's parents (Bill Murray and Frances McDormand).

The cast also includes Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton and Harvey Keitel and introduces Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the young runaways, Sam and Suzy.

Murray and Wes Anderson worked together in the films "Fantastic Mr. Fox,' "The Darjeeling Limited," "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," "The Royal Tenenbaums" and "Rushmore."

The 61-year-old actor is best known for his roles in films like "Groundhog Day," "Lost in Translation," "Scrooged" and "Stripes."

Murray also starred in "Ghostbusters," which is gearing up for a third installment, according to Dan Aykroyd, who said the script is "excellent."
