Paul Thomas Anderson Implies INHERENT VICE as His Next Movie

Inherent Vice Some two years ago we heard that Paul Thomas Anderson might follow up The Master with one of the first major film adaptations of a Thomas Pynchon novel. The book in question is Pynchon’s most recent, Inherent Vice, which follows a burnt-out detective who gets roped into a caper revolving around a real estate mogul. Robert Downey Jr. has been attached to play the lead role, but we haven’t heard much about Inherent Vice in a while. But while talking about The Master at Venice, Paul Thomas Anderson said that the Pynchon adaptation is still brewing and could be right next. Asked “what’s next?” by Screen Daily, Anderson responded,
“I’m hoping we can get Inherent Vice going soon. That’s what I’m writing now. It’s taking my mind of this, actually. It’s a lot of fun. It’s such a different piece, though. It’s nice to have a collaborator, as it were, through working on the book.
And to Empire, Anderson said Inherent Vice is “like a Cheech and Chong movie. Adapting Pychon’s work is just gonna be great and, hopefully, fun.” Asked how long the project might take, the director said,
“Hopefully not long. I’d like to have a few years of being more productive. But we’ll see… There’s so much. But it’s fun too, be because they’re his words, and… it’s like taking your dad’s car for a ride, y’know?”
