Paul Thomas Anderson & Daniel Day-Lewis Reteaming for 1950s-Set Fashion Drama

1950s-Set Fashion Drama

The auteur Paul Thomas Anderson and Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis are planning a second collaboration, following on from There Will Be Blood, the 2007 adaptation of Upton Sinclair’s novel “Oil!.”

This time around, the film will be set in 1950s New York and centered on the fashion industry although the plot is under wraps.

PTA is still working on the script and has been meeting young actresses of Eastern European descent to cast supporting roles. Day-Lewis has been attached to the project for some time.

Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures is producing and financing the untitled project.

Well, this is the best movie-related news I’ve seen in a long time, though no deal is currently in place. We’ll have more information as it comes in.
