The impressive casting news continues to surface for Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice". Josh Brolin is the latest edition to a cast that already includes Joaquin Phoenix, Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson and Reese Witherspoon. Not to mention the inclusion of Martin Short, which should indeed prove be an interesting development in an Anderson film.
The film is adapted from Thomas Pynchon's 2009 spy novel. While I don't know much about the subject matter, I do however know a great deal about Anderson's work. It's probably safe to say there's going to be some sort of troubled father/son relationship going on, whether it be a highlight of just secondary characters. That's definitely a consistent seen is most of Anderson's films.
While we don't know what character Brolin will be portraying yet, he is a diverse and generous actor, and will no doubt make a great addition to the film.
The synopsis of the book reads as follows:
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.
