EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros. Financing ‘Inherent Vice' Which Begins Shooting This Month; Robert Elswit Returning As DP


Lately we've been inundated with requests to find out what exactly is going on with Paul Thomas Anderson's adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's "Inherent Vice." The project -- which was first announced back in 2010 -- centers on a pothead private eye named Doc Sportello and his hazy adventures in late 60's Los Angeles. PTA had supposedly been interested in Robert Downey Jr. for the lead but ultimately decided to reunite with his "The Master" star Joaquin Phoenix instead and those who have seen the actor lately know that he's certainly been looking the part these days. But other than Phoenix's impressive sideburns, we had no real indication as to whether the film was still on track for the "late April/early May" dates pegged by producer JoAnne Sellar during our interview earlier this year. Since production has been so quiet recently we decided to do a little digging and have some great news to share with you all. What have we learned so far? Read on.

Warner Bros. Will Be Financing The Film
A few weeks ago The Wrap reporter Jeff Sneider caused a minor stir online when he tweeted that contrary to reports, Annapurna Pictures -- who were the saviors of "The Master" -- were not involved with 'Vice.' Well, this turns out to be completely true as a source close to production has revealed to us that "Inherent Vice" will be financed by Warner Bros. This will mark PTA's first time working with the studio (though they absorbed New Line who produced "Boogie Nights" and "Magnolia"). Our source also told us things were "completely amicable" between Annapurna and PTA and both parties hope to work together again in the future.     

Shooting Will Begin This Month
With financing in place, shooting is indeed scheduled to start this month. Though we imagine most of the major roles have been locked down but not announced at this point, we have learned that PTA is still meeting with actors for some of the smaller roles. As with "The Master" cast, expect a flood of announcements to come just prior to shooting. We hear the script is amazing so it should have no problem attracting talent.

Robert Elswit Will Return As Cinematographer
This one is may seem obvious (and we speculated that this would likely be the case) but we can now confirm that cinematographer Robert Elswit -- who shot all of Paul's films except for "The Master" and picked up an Oscar for his work on "There Will Be Blood" -- will return to shoot "Inherent Vice." For those curious, "Inherent Vice" will shoot on 35mm film. (No digital, no 70mm.)

So the film is financed and will begin shooting in the next few weeks. Is there any better news than that? We certainly can't think of any. Stay tuned for much more very soon. And if you're involved with the production, why don't you drop us a line?

Stay tuned to Twitter and Facebook for the latest news and updates.
"The Master" is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.

  1. Hope he brings back that exuberance he had in some of his earlier films rather than the more detached nature of his last two works. Would love to see that side return.

    1. I'm not the original commenter, but I think I know what he/she means. Hard Eight, Boogie Nights, and Magnolia are pretty bombastic films with a lot going on in them. They're flashier, like emotional rides.

      There Will Be Blood and The Master are way, way quieter, darker, more somber films. They're more etherial and we seem to observe them from a more objective perspective. They're more "detached" because we're sort of spying on the lives of the characters instead of invited to join them.

      And Punch-Drunk Love is perfect because it sits right in the middle. Sinister and beautiful and dreamlike.

      I realise that this entire post probably sounds like bullshit, but, them's the brakes.

  2. Awesome news! Can't wait to hear more about the casting. I'm GUESSING there are some big names, but that's not necessarily the case. There Will Be Blood had (mostly) low-profile co-stars around DDL.

  3. This is absolutely amazing news guys...THANK YOU so much for these awesome updates,info & it's great Robert Elswit is back as cinematographer! THANK YOU! :-)

  4. Way to make my day :)

    Also, i'm glad you were able to get a quote about Paul/JoAnne's relationship with Annapurna. I kind of assumed that Inherent would land somewhere, but it would have been unfortunate if some bad blood brewed between my favorite filmmaker and a great production company I have a tremendous amount of respect for.

    ReplyDelete
  5. The master was a box office failure and inherent vice is gonna need some big names to make it a b.o. success. WB can some up with that kind of $$ and annapurna probably couldnt.

    P.S. Best fan site around. Only PTA could inspire such an all-round awesome enterprise. Thanks for the news and looking forward to more!

  7. Anyway else think Joaquin Pheonix, Vince Vaughn and Robert Pattison might have been hanging out for a reason?????

    1. Vince would be great as Bigfoot!!!

    2. Even though Vince and Joaquin have been good pals for years, I do think that Vince would make a good Big Foot (but we'll have to wait and see).. I thought the exct same thing when I saw those three together.. R-Patz in a PTA-film.. That's interesting

      Delete
    3. I could actually kind of see R-Patz playing Coy.

  8. I don't know if he has a play planned somewhere or what, but according to IMDB Philip Seymour Hoffman's schedule is open. Mihai did a great job with The Master, but its good to see Elswit back in the lineup with the PTA Allstars.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Would love to see Jack Fisk and Jon Brion be part of this. Sounds like Pynchon has kind of suggested the soundtrack, though!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Would love for PTA to work with Jon Brion again or perhaps a composer he hasnt worked with before. For example: A PTA movie with a Philip Glass score, that would be interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Robert Elswit will NOT be the DP. He is filming NINJA TURTLES (not a joke) at the moment, and will likely be for some time. Well played, Robert. Well played.

    1. Ninja Turtles started filming in early April. Vice doesn't start until later this month.

  12. I forget what is the status of the Charlize Theron rumor? Might that still happen? That would be great.
    Also I want to jump on the pro-Jon Brion bandwagon.

  16. filled with Joy about this... What is it in PTA's work that is so incredible? And bringing a Pynchon work to life? It's just incredible. I think it's not necessarily his best book, (crying of lot 49, gravity's rainbow (thoughts?)) but I'm sure PTA found what he needs within it.

  17. I love Robert Elswit's stills on Punch-Drunk, that too me is great freaking news.

  19. I bought my first e cig over five years ago because I love technology and the idea was intriguing. I did not buy it to quit smoking. Over time, I picked it up more often and found that I enjoyed it as a substitute for smoking cigarettes I smoked simply out of routine habit. I also bought it because it allowed me to use it in smoking banned places...here
