Amy Adams joins the cast of Paul Thomas Anderson's Scientology drama

Paul Thomas Anderson has another member to add to the cast of his still untitled scientology movie (formerly THE MASTER).

Amy Adams has signed on to play the wife of Philip Seymour Hoffmans character. Hoffman plays, "a man who returns from witnessing the horrors of WWII, and in an attempt to find himself, he forms a belief system that catches on in the 1950s." A couple of months ago, there were rumors that Adams would join the film. Good thing she decided to hop on board.

Despite some confusion, Joaquin Phoenix will be playing Hoffman's assistant. It was thought that Phoenix was off the project and Jeremy Renner would be taking his place. While Renner would have been great, it's nice to have Phoenix back.

Another thing to be thankful for is Megan Eliison backing the project financially under her Annapurna Productions banner.

Can't wait to see this one.

I'm fairly sure PTA still plans to do Inherent Vice, it was more a decision over which film to do first :)

My favorite actor and my favorite actress together in a movie by one of my favorite directors, a movie that didn't even seem like it would ever be made a few months ago? :-D

It's really happening

Hopefully he can bang this movie out and then the Downey Jr. one shortly after. 5 year waits are too long.

I really can't wait for this film. It fells like an eternity since PT Anderson has done anything (yes, I know There Will Be Blood wasn't that long ago.)And I always loves me some Amy Adams!

Jesse Plemons, the blonde-ginger kid from Friday Night Lights, is in it as PSH's son, which is great casting.
Also joining the cast is Laura Dern, who ought to be a bigger star.
