It was announced last year that Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood) were set to reunite for a new film. Now news arrives that the untitled movie is currently shooting and has added Lesley Manville (Maleficent) and Vicky Krieps (A Most Wanted Man).
Focus Features have announced that Anderson recently started production here in the UK on his latest film, which is a drama set in the couture world of 1950s London. And the story is specifically that of an uncompromising dressmaker whose clients include royalty and others in high society. Nothing else has been released about the film, but then it is Paul Thomas Anderson, so frankly we are happy to wait. The director has recruited several of his regular collaborators, including composer Jonny Greenwood and costume designer Mark Bridges.
Focus is handling the movie in the US and is aiming have it in cinemas later this year, with Universal Pictures taking international distribution.
