Benicio Del Toro is reportedly in talks to join Paul Thomas Anderson’s upcoming feature, Inherent Vice, playing the role of an attorney (again), TheWrap reported.
The film, adapted from Thomas Pynchon’s crime novel of the same name, is centered around a private eye (Joaquin Phoenix) who takes on the case of a kidnapped girl in 1970s Los Angeles.
Production is expected to begin later this month.
Del Toro was last seen in 2012’s The Savages, directed by Oliver Stone. Paul Thomas Anderson continued his critical acclaim streak last year with The Master.
