Director Paul Thomas Anderson has made a plethora of distinctive, impactful movies, that all generally incorporate a troubled "father and son" relationship at some point. His last film "The Master", starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix, was acknowledged as a visual cinematic achievement but was received with mixed reviews as the subject matter was quite controversial. Anderson has never had a problem taking risks as a director.
It was recently revealed that Anderson's next project will be "Inherent Vice", an adaptation based on Thomas Pynchon's spy novel. Robert Downey Jr. may take a break from wearing the Iron Man suit as he is currently being eyed for the lead role. This could mean we might see him return to a role similar to the one he had in "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" opposite Val Kilmer, which would be just fine with us since he was fantastic in that film.
Book synopsis of "Inherent Vice":
It's been a while since Doc Sportello has seen his ex- girlfriend. Suddenly she shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer whom she just happens to be in love with. It's the tail end of the psychedelic sixties in L.A., and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," except that this one usually leads to trouble.
In terms of timing for the project, Anderson stated that he has "a large stack of pages" and hopes to shoot next year. We'll keep you posted as the story develops.
