Paul Thomas Anderson's <i>Inherent Vice</i> Expected to Begin Shooting This Month

Good news—it looks as though audiences will not have to wait six years for another film from Paul Thomas Anderson.

According to Anderson-centric site Cigarettes and Red Vines, The Master director will begin shooting his new film, an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s psychedelic noir Inherent Vice, later this month.

This appears to confirm producer JoAnne Sellar’s statements last year that the film would hopefully begin production in the spring.

Furthermore, the report reveals that Warner Bros. will be financing the film, which marks Anderson’s first time working with the studio.

In terms of cast and crew, the article speculates that the majority of the main roles have been cast (presumably, Joaquin Phoenix is still set to play the lead), but that Anderson is still in the process of casting some minor roles.

Also, frequent Anderson collaborator Robert Elswit will once again serve as the filmmaker’s cinematographer.
