Paul Thomas Anderson’s INHERENT VICE Hoping to Shoot in Late April or Early May

It appears that writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson is wasting no time in putting together his follow-up to his 2012 effort The Master.  Though there was a five-year gap between Punch-Drunk Love and There Will Be Blood and the same amount of time lapsed between TWBB and The Master, Anderson is moving much faster on his adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel Inherent Vice.  We recently learned that Anderson’s The Master star Joaquin Phoenix will be handling the lead role in the 1960s Los Angeles private detective story, and now word comes that production is gearing up to begin in a few short months.  Hit the jump for more.

inherent_vice_book_cover_01Speaking with the fansite Cigarettes and Red Vines, Anderson’s longtime producer JoAnn Sellar revealed that they’re hoping to start filming on Inherent Vice very soon:

“We’re just putting the financing together and the plan is to start shooting in late April,” Sellar told us. We asked if that meant casting announcements would be underway shortly, she said “Everything should be [underway] very soon in order to start shooting then: late April/early May kinda thing.”

Anderson previously described the Pynchon adaptation as “more secretarial” than his loose adaptation of Oil! for There Will Be Blood, so we can likely expect something at least a tad closer to the source material.  Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures—which produced The Master—is financing the pic, so hopefully we hear more casting news soon.  As with most projects in Hollywood, it’s still possible that circumstances could push the start-date back, but it’s clear that PTA is eager to get going.
