The Hollywood Reporter reports this morning that Paul Thomas Anderson has lined up his ninth feature film to begin production in early 2020.
The as-of-yet-untitled picture is said to be centered around a child actor-cum-high school student in the San Fernando Valley in the 1970s, marking a return to a place and period PTA has covered so fondly and well over the years.
This tidbit from THR's story is notable as well:
Sources say casting is underway to find the lead and the project features a multitude of roles and could be ensemble in nature or have intersecting storylines.
More details will be dropped here as they are available.
