Paul Thomas Anderson Daniel Day-Lewis

The last time Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis collaborated on a film together we got THERE WILL BE BLOOD, which I easily place among my favourite movies of all time. Several months ago a tantalizing rumour emerged that the talented pair were set to reunite for a new as-yet-untitled film, and now, Deadline has confirmed it.

After a lengthy bidding war, Universal Pictures and Focus Features have snagged the world-wide rights to a new film which Paul Thomas Anderson will write and direct and Daniel Day-Lewis will star in. Hell yes. We don't know much more about the mystery project than we did three months ago, but it's said that the film will revolve around the 1950's fashion world in London. Focus Features will be footing the bill for the projects $35 million budget and the plan, at the moment, is to kick off production early next year for a late 2017 release.

Neither Anderson nor Day-Lewis are the types to rush into a movie, which makes any project they decide to take on a special event, but having them reuniting once again will be quite the treat.

Great News!

I just could not get into the last two movies from Anderson; Inherent Vice and The Master. The Master was a let down because I think we were all hoping it would be this scathing indictment about Scientology and it became something completely different. Inherent Vice never looked like anything that interested me. I didn't see it. And that's coming from someone who's top 3 films include Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood, and Magnolia. I won't get too excited because the London fashion industry

I won't get too excited because the London fashion industry in the 50's sound kinda boring. I'm sure that Daniel Day will liven it up though. 37 million is a great bet. Production companies must love that he can keep costs down.

what i would say about the master, and what i found unexpected and interesting, is that anderson made a film that highlights the vast issues of scientology and religion or cults in general, but even with something like scientology, there is something to it that is beneficial underneath all the weird and bad of it all. plus you get two powerhouse performances and the film is phenomenal to look at.

Can I pre-order a ticket yet lol

Damn, I was just thinking about them pairing up the other day and here we go. There Will Be Blood is incredible, almost as if it was made in another decade it's so good.

I hope it's better than his last film, Inherent Vice. It had its moments, but the story was all over the place.

being all over the place was sort of the point. i think people will look back on inherent vice for the brilliant film it is, but i totally understand why it wasn't for everyone. for pynchon fans, it was a masterful film adaptation of the novel.

TWBB is arguably the greatest film of the last decade, and I always eagerly await the next PTA's film. Will be curious to see what type of character DDL will play in this.

The announcement of a new Daniel Day-Lewis film is always good news. I don't even care what it's about - I will definitely be watching it.
