News – Inherent Vice

Paul Thomas Anderson and Joaquin Phoenix

Inherent Vice, a noir-esque novel set in Los Angles and on its way to the silver screen will reunite director Paul Thomas Anderson with outstanding method actor Joaquin Phoenix. The two collaborated in The Master (2012), creating one of the best films either of us had seen here in a long time. First choice to lead this Anderson written and directed by feature was in fact Robert Downing Jr. who had to leave the project for undisclosed reasons – he won’t be missed.

Anderson had wanted to work with Phoenix long before getting his chance last year, saying “I asked him to be in Boogie Nights (1997), I asked him to be in There Will Be Blood (2007), I’ve wanted to work with him for the longest time.”

Put simply, this is exciting news for the film world. There may be a long lasting partnership on the cards.
