    Beef Watch: Nicolas Winding Refn 'Repulsed' By Lars Von Trier! Von Trier Says 'Fuck Him'! Porno!

    Another day, another right turn to the ridiculously stupid fall-out from Lars Von Trier's "nazi" statements. Good old humorless reporters at Cannes loved raking noted provocateur Lars Von Trier over the coals for his joking "pro-Nazi" stance before the organization dubbed him persona non grata. The ...

    Paul Thomas Anderson Testing Out 65mm Cameras For New Film Which Won't Be Shot By Robert Elswit

    When it comes to the next Paul Thomas Anderson film, all news is mysterious news. While we're still not sure exactly which of Anderson's films might be going into production first, it had looked like it might be his Thomas Pynchon adaptation "Inherent Vice" this fall, but recent casting speculation leads us to believe it may be the untitled religious drama sometimes referred to as "The Master," which is now possibly to co-star Joaquin Phoenix alongside Philip Seymour Hoffman. The next little morsel of news comes from reliable fansite Cigarettes & Red Vines. The site received a tip from a reader that indicates that Anderson has been shooting t...

    Joaquin Phoenix In Talks To Join Paul Thomas Anderson's Scientology Film

    With newbie arthouse loving and totally loaded financier Megan Ellison giving fresh legs to Paul Thomas Anderson's long gestating Scientology flick back in February, and after Universal balked and dropped the $35 million drama, it looks like it's now sputtering back to life, hoping to get a cast ass...

    Entertainment Weekly Pick The 25 Greatest Working Directors; Confirms The Fallacy Of Listmaking

    Paul Thomas Anderson's 'Inherent Vice' May Shoot This Fall With Robert Downey Jr.

    Paul Thomas Anderson is nothing if not deliberate. With Kubrickian spans of time between each of his films, the man simply will not be rushed. Which is why it was surprising that a few short months after his religious drama (commonly referred to as) “The Master” seemed to go quiet, it was revealed late last year that Anderson was already hard at work on his next project, an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s "Inherent Vice." At that time, CAA, (who also rep Anderson), wanted to attach Robert Downey Jr. to the lead role of private eye Doc Sportello, but because of Downey’s busy schedule it was unclear when he would be available to film. Just over ...

    Paul Thomas Anderson Looks To Adapt Thomas Pychon's 'Inherent Vice' With Robert Downey Jr.

    RDJ Not Signed On Yet, And Project Sounds Like It's In Early Stages, But WowAdapting the work of reclusive literary genius Thomas Pynchon seems like a fool's errand. His novels -- "Gravity's Rainbow" and "The Crying of Lot 49" -- among others, feature dense plotting, allegorical whimsy, and are stuf...
