Ever since director Paul Thomas Anderson started his illustrious movie profession with 1996’s HARD EIGHT, he is dazzled the cinema panorama with a numerous array of matters, every part from oddball religions (THE MASTER), to grease barons (THERE WILL BE BLOOD), to the style world of 1950s London (PHANTOM THREAD). A grasp storyteller, his movies are by no means simple to outline and signify a novel voice in cinema. Effectively it seems as if the 2 time Oscar nominated director has lastly set his sights on a brand new undertaking.
Paul Thomas Anderson’s subsequent film will as soon as once more be set within the 1970s and within the San Fernando Valley the place Anderson grew up. Three of Anderson’s earlier movies – BOOGIE NIGHTS, MAGNOLIA, and PUNCH DRUNK LOVE – all befell in that exact locale. Anderson’s movie doesn’t but have a title however the film reportedly “will probably be centered on a highschool pupil who can also be a profitable youngster actor. The undertaking contains a multitude of roles and may very well be ensemble in nature or have intersecting storylines.”
Coloration me intrigued. The INHERENT VICE director’s new movie sounds very a lot within the mode of MAGNOLIA and I am to see his tackle the complicated world of childhood actors. That individual subject has acquired a lot consideration within the final a number of years with Corey Haim making allegations of childhood sexual abuse and Fashionable Household”s actress Ariel Winter’s family struggles. Most just lately, actor Shia LaBeouf delved deep into the topic with the critically acclaimed HONEY BOY. (You’ll be able to learn Chris Bumbray’s assessment proper right here.) It is secure to say the subject material is rife with dramatic alternatives.
At the moment, no actors or actresses are hooked up to Anderson’s undertaking however man I might like to see William H. Macy, Julianne Moore, and John C. Reilly return to the fold.
Principal images on the untitled movie begins February 2020.
