For the first time in Wes Anderson's career, it looks like we may get films in back-to-back years from the Moonrise Kingdom director. While it was originally thought that we wouldn't be seeing the filmmaker's next movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel, until 2014, apparently plans may have changed.

2004ís Napoleon Dynamite was more than just a movie that everyone quoted nonstop for months. Napoleon Dynamite was one of the great success stories of independent filmmaking. A couple of kids from Idaho wrote and directed a quirkier than quirky low budget movie about one of cinemaís weirdest heroes which went on to make millions.
He Loves Me looks to have its share of quirk as well. Dano stars as a writer struggling for inspiration who writes about his dream woman and somehow wills her into existence. His real-life girlfriend Zoe Kazan will play the woman and also wrote the script
After making a run late in the festival as being the big critical darling of Sundance, then moving on to another successful appearance at SXSW, the tiny indie Sound of My Voice has finally snagged a distributor to match all that critical buzz
