Paul Thomas Anderson has been taking a small vacation after directing Phantom Thread. But now it appears that he is getting ready to get back to work. New reports confirm that his next feature will be a film set in 1970s San Fernando Valley, and will center on a high school student who is also a Hollywood actor. More on the report below.
Daniel Day-Lewis is retiring. We’ve known that for quite some time. The actor has given powerful performances on a consistent basis never, so it is sad to see that all come to an end. One of the most stunning came from a collaboration with Paul Thomas-Anderson in There Will Be Blood, a film for which he earned himself an Academy Award for Best Actor. Though it has been ten years since the two have worked together on a project, it seems fitting that Day-Lewis’ acting career comes to an end with the director’s new film Phantom Thread.
The first trailer for Phantom Thread has been released, and it gives us a small tease of what not only looks like another great film, but a terrific end to an absolutely great career. Check it out here below.
Looking at Paul Thomas Anderson‘s IMDB page, you might think that he wouldn’t write or direct anything like Pinocchio. But there are new reports saying that the filmmaker is set to write, with the possibility of also directing, an adaptation of the title character that Robert Downey Jr. has been attached to since 2012.
This particular Pinocchio isn’t related to the string of live-action adaptations of classics that Disney will be releasing in the upcoming years, though the film would still follow the plot of a wooden puppet who comes to life with dreams of becoming a real boy. More on this story below.
Following his Academy Award nomination today for his work on Inherent Vice, director Paul Thomas Anderson talked to Rolling Stone about the stoner film and Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name. The filmmaker is more known for his works on Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood, and The Master, and with that kind of filmography, you’d think that the guy would weigh in on the side of those who believe that the superhero genre is destroying cinema.
Well, get that thought out of your head because Anderson thinks otherwise. In fact, he speaks highly of the genre, and doesn’t understand why people would think there’s something wrong with superhero movies. Hit the jump for the full quote.
A new trailer called “Paranoia” has been released for the next movie from Boogie Nights and There Will Be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson, which is titled Inherent Vice. You can also watch a previous trailer if you’ve never seen it.
The movie features a huge cast including multiple Oscar winners and nominees, led by three-time nominee Joaquin Phoenix. You can read a full synopsis and watch the new Inherent Vice trailer below.
