Acclaimed director Paul Thomas Anderson and certified G.O.A.T actor Daniel Day-Lewis are rumored to be teaming up again for a new film. Their last collaboration, 2007’s There Will Be Blood, is one of the most acclaimed films of the 21st century and netted Day-Lewis his second Oscar (of three; he scored a third for 2012’s Lincoln). While nothing is concrete, a few things are certain. Anderson’s new film takes place in the world of 1950s fashion, and it’s being produced by Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures, who previously worked with Anderson on The Master and Inherent Vice.
For one of the most acclaimed actors of all time, Day-Lewis is notoriously reclusive and picky about his projects. But with their previous collaboration going so well, it makes sense that he’d be willing to work with Anderson again. Sources say that the two are discussing Day-Lewis starring in the film, which is currently looking for a number of supporting roles in Eastern European actresses. No studio is currently attached to produce the film.
There’s very little solid information attached to the project as of right now, but if Daniel Day-Lewis is considering reuniting with Paul Thomas Anderson, it’s certainly worth talking about. Hopefully discussions will go well and lead to something a little more definite, as it’d be quite a big deal for these two to reunite creatively.
