James Gray Claims Inherent Vice Is "In The Middle Of Shooting"


During the Cannes press junket for The Immigrant, James Gray arrived with many members of the cast & production team and was quickly asked about the absence of Joaquin Phoenix.

Joaquin Phoenix couldn’t be in Cannes because he’s shooting a little movie called “Inherent Vice.”
One of the first questions from the media in Cannes was, where’s Joaquin? Well, he’s currently shooting the much-anticipated new movie from Paul Thomas Anderson based on the stoner/detective novel by Thomas Pynchon. 
“Actually, believe it or not, he wanted to come, which is a first,” Gray said. “But he’s in the middle of shooting a movie with Paul Thomas Anderson and they wouldn’t let him out. You know it’s a Friday in the middle of a shoot week so, it was impossible.”

"The Master" is now available on Blu-ray and DVD

  1. Paul you little rascal you. If what this guy says is true then we've all been duped. I thought Vice wasn't to begin shooting until late May/early June. And hey, does anyone out there have any info on the Punch Drunk Love bluray? The years practically half over and there's been no word. What gives? I'm gettin' antsy. I've already bought my little chocolate pudding cups ready to be devoured while enjoying my first viewing.

      They began production at least a week before May 2nd

    4. but obviously nothing major, probably just moving out of pre-production at that point and moving onto location

    5. Also not to keep hammering the point, but here's an article from the LA times dated May 1st. I'm guessing inherent vice started filming in late april just as JoAnn Seller said it would:

    6. They were still scouting locations last week and building sets as I write this. PTA likes to rehearse with his actors, that's been going on for a few weeks. They may have been doing camera tests, blocking specific scenes, etc., when they saw Joaquin in late April, but definitely not filming. If everything goes well, and there have been minor hiccups this past week, principal photography will begin this upcoming week.

    7. You should google search 217 33rd Street on Manhattan Beach, CA. That might be an interesting location.

      I wonder if El Porto Surf School nearby plays any role?

  6. I wouldn't read too literally into "in the middle" of it...probably just means they are in full swing...just semantics, really.

    1. Yeah, that's how I interpreted it. "In the middle" = "currently"

    2. you are interpreting correct. next week is official start.

    2. Wolfmann is supposed to be elderly, like late 60s. Denis is in his late 20s.

      The only roles I can see for Penn and Brolin are Prussia and Bigfoot or Puck.
