Paul Thomas Anderson & Daniel Day-Lewis Reteaming For Drama Set In 1950s Fashion World
via The Playlist

As one of the most exciting American filmmakers working today, we’ve all been wondering; what’s Paul Thomas Anderson’s up to next? Certainly not directing “Pinocchio” though he did do rewrites on the project for his buddy Robert Downey Jr. (he almost starred in “Inherent Vice”). Well, now we know and it’s a move and project that no one would have really expected in a million years: PTA is reteaming with his “There Will Be Blood” star Daniel Day-Lewis for a movie set in the 1950s fashion world in New York.

Apparently no deals are in place, but Day-Lewis is in talks for the project. Anderson and Day-Lewis obviously were a tremendous pairing on 2007’s “There Will Be Blood,” a movie that won the actor his second Academy Award for Best Actor and one for its DP Robert Elswit (in total ‘Blood’ was nominated for eight awards including Best Picture and Best Director).

Evidently while Anderson is still working on the script Day-Lewis has been attached to the project for some time so clearly the director/actor have been mapping out there next move together likely months ago PTA has been apparently meeting young actresses of Eastern European descent to cast supporting roles. This is not unlike the director’s approach to “The Master,” which saw a number of names circling early on as he worked on the screenplay and conducted rehearsals, before the final cast solidified, and it rolled in front of cameras.

Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures, who last worked with Anderson on “The Master,” is producing and financing the untitled project. Day-Lewis hasn’t made a movie since 2011’s “Lincoln” while Anderson’s last movie was the terrific documentary “Junun” featuring Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, Shye Ben Tzur & The Rajastan Express. He’s also directed recent music videos for Joanna Newsom and Radiohead.

Best film of 2019 (so far). Also:

PTA has been apparently meeting young actresses of Eastern European descent to cast supporting roles.

PTA has a cool life.

OK, it says "drama," but this would seem like a possible opportunity for PTA to do a riff/homage of Putney Swope.

Plus, had DDL ever done anything approaching a full comedy? Get that three-time Oscar winner out of his comfort zone. Set him as the straight-laced executive trying to keep it together as Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle go into full hijinx mode.

Also, watch as PTA decides DDL is too old and then Joaquin steps in (but please more PTA DDL, I feel like most people would still cast DDL even if was too old).

Is Paul Thomas Anderson’s Next Movie About This Famous Fashion Designer?
By Kyle Buchanan (From Vulture)


Last week’s announcement that director Paul Thomas Anderson would be reuniting with Daniel Day-Lewis for his next film had the industry buzzing: Day-Lewis has not made a film since 2012’s Lincoln, and his return to the screen could hardly come under better auspices, since he won an Oscar for his terrifying, iconic work as oil baron Daniel Plainview in Anderson’s There Will Be Blood. But fans of Anderson have little to go on when it comes to the new project’s log line. Unlike Anderson’s last movie, Inherent Vice, which was adapted from a well-known Thomas Pynchon novel, his latest film has no name and its plot remains under wraps; all that Variety could divulge about it is that it will be set in the New York fashion world during the 1950s.

Still, even that slim thread provides a few clues. Anderson often makes films that are inspired by real people — Boogie Nights lead Dirk Diggler was a takeoff on porn star John Holmes, for instance, and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s spiritual leader in The Master was clearly patterned on Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard — and since the new project has such a specific milieu, we sought to identify a figure from the fashion world during that era that Day-Lewis could conceivably play. Let the well-researched speculation begin.

While New York came into its own as a style capital after World War II, the 1950s were mostly dominated by designers who lived and worked in Europe, like Christian Dior, Pierre Balmain, and Cristóbal Balenciaga, so if you presume that Day-Lewis’s character is a notable fashion designer — and given that the actor is in his late 50s, it’s not likely he’d be playing some mere lackey — then there are only a few notable, New York–based designers from that time who seem like they could be plausible subjects.

One of them is Mainbocher, one of the most in-demand couturiers of the era, who famously designed the wedding dress for American socialite Wallis Simpson as she prepared to marry the abdicating King Edward VIII of England. (The story of the that coupling was told recently in Madonna’s critically panned directorial effort W.E.) But we suspect that if Anderson is indeed making a movie inspired by a New York fashion designer in the 1950s, he’d be most drawn to Charles James, who created some of the most audacious, expensive gowns in the world and even dressed other titans of couture like Coco Chanel. His was a life full of terrific drama, and like several other Anderson protagonists, James was a mercurial mastermind, a prodigy around whom an interesting adopted family formed.

The British-born James came to America as a teenager, though not before a controversial stint at school that saw him yanked from Harrow for wearing makeup. The precocious James thrived in his new country, opening up a hat shop in Chicago at 19, then moving to New York to design and sell dresses at age 22. He made an impression with his famous taxi dress, which was boldly zipped around the torso, and quickly became a favored couturier of dynamic women like Marlene Dietrich, Babe Paley, and Gypsy Rose Lee. In the '40s and '50s, he was a fashion-world sensation and, reportedly, something of an egomaniac. As one biographer put it:

He considered himself an artist rather than a dressmaker, and was so strongly attached to his creations that he felt they ultimately belonged to him. He would borrow back a dress from one client, only to lend it to another; or, worse, loan it out for an advertising campaign for feminine products. At minimum eccentricity, the darkly handsome designer — who was said to have been an excellent model for his own work — might don a finished gown and dance all night in his apartment above the Chelsea Hotel before handing it over … if he handed it over at all. He did not let go of his creations easily. He made his clients pay, sometimes twice for the same gown, and sometimes for a garment he had also promised another client. He was notorious for not having garments delivered on time.

James’s personal life was just as hectic. A gossip and man-about-town, he was given to mood swings, and he once tried to kill himself over a boy he had romantic designs on. (Even that attempted suicide had a fairly fashionable outcome, as James was rescued and cut down by his neighbor, Jean Cocteau.) While he romanced men in plain sight, his sexuality was complicated; after one fling with stage designer Keith Cuerdon, James stole Cuerdon’s wife, Nancy, and married her himself. It’s no wonder that James’s dresses were draped so dramatically, given all that was going on behind the scenes. As Patricia Mears, who oversees the James collection at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, said to Vanity Fair, “Each dress reflects his tortured soul. He’s trying to deal with his own sexuality, his own conflicts in life.”

Though his dresses were among the most expensive in the world, James was a profligate spender, and merely staying afloat and paying the rent was a suspenseful enterprise for him. (He once emptied a jar of cockroaches on the front desk of the Delmonico Hotel in an attempt to evade his debts there.) Mired in lawsuits, inattentive to his tax obligations, and irrevocably drawn to burning bridges in the fashion world, James’s business went under in the late '50s, though he remained a charismatic society figure until his death, in 1978. Recently, there has been a resurgence of interest in his brand: James was the muse for the Met Gala two years ago and the subject of a recent New York Magazine article, and nearly a year and a half after Harvey Weinstein released Anderson’s 2012 movie, The Master, Weinstein announced that his company had struck a deal to acquire the Charles James label.

Is that a clue about Anderson’s next film (which is currently set up without a studio) or mere coincidence? Nobody involved with the project is talking, but whether or not Anderson’s '50’s-set fashion drama draws inspiration from Charles James, there’s no denying the cinematic contours of James’s wild life. Filmmaker Angela Bernhard Thomas recently helmed a documentary about James entitled Beneath the Dress, and even the artists in James’s orbit have begun to entice Hollywood; Antonio Lopez, a fashion illustrator who enjoyed a notable friendship and collaboration with James, is set to be the subject of another documentary (and with good reason, because the man lived a crazy life that included plucking Jessica Lange out of a French mime school to give her the imprimatur of a superstar). James, his adventures, his friends, and his obsessions would certainly make for a terrific Paul Thomas Anderson film and give Daniel Day-Lewis a compelling new character, but even if our hunch is incorrect … well, we’re sure Charles wouldn’t mind a rumor linking him to two more fabulous artists with boldfaced names.

Sounds like a great basis for a story/character. He should approach historical figures the same way he did in The Master- approximations of individuals. Drawing directly from history but using his own characters to explore the situations and moments he wants. Heck- The Master certainly isn't the first film where he did this. But I feel it's where he did it best.

Quote
Take the "I drink your milkshake" line from There Will Be Blood. There are a lot of people out there who I'm sure think, "Kind of hit a sour note with the 'milkshake' bit, Paul" [laughs]. Because, yeah, it's big. But if memory serves, that exact line was taken from a transcript from the 1920s, when the Teapot Dome scandal was going on, so . . . if you can convince yourself that there's some link to reality, then you can justify anything.

He doesn't need to do a biopic that mirrors reality- in fact, I think that would work against him. The dude is big admirer of American culture/people/history, he has so much to draw upon, so much to use- to create something fresh but real.
This probably all sounds basic and straightforward but goddamn, did he make the alternate reality of The Master feel so real without it ever feeling like a cheap allusion.

There is certainly more than enough material in James' bio for a fascinating film and a fascinating performance by DDL.

It also strikes me -- after reading the bio and checking out some photos -- that James' wife, Nancy Lee Gregory, could be in Maya Rudolph's wheelhouse. Which could be really cool.

Focus Features Pick Up Paul Thomas Anderson & Daniel Day-Lewis’s New Movie, 2017 Release Planned

Deadline reports that Focus Features have won an auction for worldwide rights for the new movie from the “Magnolia” and “Inherent Vice” director, which will reteam him with his Oscar-winning “There Will Be Blood” star Daniel Day-Lewis. As previously reported, it’ll be a drama set in the fashion world in the 1950s, and Focus will finance the $35 million budget entirely, making this one of the biggest deals ever struck at a festival.

While details are still thin on the ground (aside that Anderson will produce alongside longtime producing partner JoAnne Sellar and Megan Ellison, who backed his last couple of films too), the good news is that we shouldn’t have long to wait: shooting will apparently begin next year for a release before the end of 2017. It couldn’t be better news to start the fall season off with (particularly with Focus, who looked to be getting out of the prestige game for a while, but see this joining a slate that also includes movies by Tom Ford, Joe Wright and Sofia Coppola, among others). More news on this as we get it.

Release within 16 months?

Even if he's (secretly) way far along in pre-production, that would really represent slimming things down and speeding things up for this one.

Lean and mean no-frills drama. I like it.

Wow. That's a huge decision to make. If this is the case surely it wasn't a choice that was made for budgetary reasons. Apart from anything else most DoP's would give their right arm to work with PTA regardless of budget.

I think he's always been pretty hands on in that respect anyway, and seems to be in control of the aesthetic for each film. I can't think of any other films shot by Robert Elswit that even come close to the work he's done with PTA.

I'm assuming this will be shot on film so while the Junun experience may have given him confidence in the smaller crew this will be completely different. I can't wait to see what he comes up with if this is true.

Press Release (http://theplaylist.net/new-cast-members-logline-revealed-paul-thomas-andersons-new-film-starring-daniel-day-lewis-jonny-greenwood-20170201/)

Quote
LOS ANGELES, February 1st, 2017 – Production has begun in the U.K. on writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson’s untitled new film. Three-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis is joined in the cast by Lesley Manville, who was a BAFTA Award nominee for Best Actress for Another Year, and Vicky Krieps, whose films include A Most Wanted Man and Focus Features’ Hanna.

Focus holds worldwide rights to the film, and will distribute the film in the U.S. later this year with Universal Pictures handling international distribution.

The film’s producers are JoAnne Sellar, Megan Ellison, through her Annapurna Pictures, and Paul Thomas Anderson. The executive producers are Peter Heslop, Adam Somner, and Daniel Lupi. Chelsea Barnard and Jillian Longnecker are overseeing production for Annapurna.

Continuing their creative collaboration following 2007’s There Will Be Blood, which earned Mr. Day-Lewis the Best Actor Academy Award, Mr. Anderson will once again explore a distinctive milieu of the 20th century. The new movie is a drama set in the couture world of 1950s London. The story illuminates the life behind the curtain of an uncompromising dressmaker commissioned by royalty and high society.

The creative team includes Academy Award-winning costume designer Mark Bridges, marking his eighth consecutive project with Mr. Anderson; Emmy Award-winning production designer Mark Tildesley and BAFTA Award-nominated set decorator Véronique Melery; Academy Award-nominated film editor Dylan Tichenor, and BAFTA Award-nominated composer Jonny Greenwood, each marking their fourth feature with Mr. Anderson; casting director Cassandra Kulukundis, on her seventh film with Mr. Anderson; and lighting cameraman Michael Bauman.

The lack of DP there seems to confirm PTA shooting this himself.  :shock:

Also interesting that the other 2 announced castmembers are both actresses who have been spotted on set already in the first few days. I wonder if they are indeed the film's two other most central characters or will there be more that just haven't been announced yet bc they haven't been seen. (Normally I would assume all the main ones are in the press release, but with PTA you never know.)

No Crank or Fisk either on this one but type Véronique Melery into google images and you get a few pics of her work and you can totally understand the choice for set decorator.

Jonny! Woooooooooo!

The fact he's DoP on this one is still pretty crazy but I think the mention of Michael Bauman as lighting cameraman is probably important in this regard. He'll be important in balancing out the workload.

The earliest report said this would be set in New York, another hope dashed! I was so excited to see the NYC sequence in 'The Master' that was entirely cut out of the film. We'll get him one day. The end of that movie wasn't actually shot in the UK, so I've become very curious what PTA's England will look like.

Great to see everything moving along so quickly!

Perhaps Aimee Mann got caught into the mix of thoughts about past collaborators.

Yeah, that's the really exciting thing. He was kinda becoming known as a chronicler of America's 20th century in a way. So I'm wondering if he just followed the story he was writing or if there was some existing reason for him to try something different. A NYC sequence would be dope though. But there's always a possibility that there might be some scenes set in the US. I loved the department store parts in The Master, the production design was superb. I would love to see little NYC boutiques in a similar style.

http://filmmakermagazine.com/51979-the-master-writerdirector-paul-thomas-anderson/
Quote
Anderson: It’s pretty tight. We have a nice tight circle of trust. I mean, [editor] Leslie Jones for sure is probably the queen of the cast, her and [producer] JoAnne [Sellars]. But every day Leslie and I just go back and forth about what to do and where things might go. Ultimately the relationship I have with Leslie is pretty, pretty tight and it’s between us. She’s great to work with. [Editor] Dylan [Tichenor] was off doing something else, but he was a part of it, too, checking in and being again a part of what the decisions were. And then, yeah, friends and family.

He also gave some opinions at the writing phase like PSH. That sort of thing is always cool, like Sandler being around during the editing of TWBB, offering advice on cuts.

Now that things are trickling out, this is what I heard the central plot was (though who knows): DDL plays a pretty misogynist fashion designer who meets a young modell, falls in love, and she hooks him onto drugs and they develop some sort of master-slave relationship, with him as the submissive.

Again, who knows, but it sounds like it could be PTA-ish.

Yes please.

Also, earlier when I guessed that he himself would be DP for budget constraints, I was joking about the budget constraint part. .. admittedly, I was also joking about the PTA being his own DP part, but that may have turned out correct, so I'm going to pretend that I was not in fact joking about that.

The fact he's DoP on this one is still pretty crazy but I think the mention of Michael Bauman as lighting cameraman is probably important in this regard. He'll be important in balancing out the workload.

Kubrick did the same with EWS, so maybe he's finally taking the SK road, small crew and a lot of DIY.

I love the little story behind the pictures.

Quote
I had decided to head home, whilst thinking I had missed the filming and they had all left. However I nipped in a local shop for a coffee before leaving and they told me the filming was behind schedule so I hung about a while longer.

As actors and film crew started to turn up, what was noticeable today was the complete contrast in attitude from the film crew from how we had found them to be earlier in the week. Gone was that air of secrecy we had witnessed in Lythe last week.

The film crew were pleasant and smiley, quite happy to chat and even pose for photographs. They said the filming would be in the afternoon and even said I would be allowed on the platform for some photographs.

Whilst photographing the set and actors, The producer himself turned up and was more than happy to have his photograph taken alongside the Locomotive they would be filming on.

Mr Thomas Anderson seemed quite shocked that I actually didn’t know who he was, however he found it quite amusing that the security and film crew had told me his understudy Roger Bartholemew-Ramjet was the actual producer, and that I had been snapping Mr Ramjet all week thinking i had some awesome shots of Oscar winner Mr Thomas.

Many of the film crew were shocked I had managed to locate them in the middle of the National Park. Some crew were laughing and said even they didn’t know the secret location until 2 hours prior. I explained that we are a tight nit Yorkshire Community and not much goes unnoticed in The Esk Valley.

Mr Thomas Anderson said he had really Enjoyed his stay in Yorkshire, and had massively enjoyed Fish And Chips in Whitby, he added that “Yorkshire was indeed The Finest County in the whole of England”.

The Film crew informed me that today was their final day in the area and they would be heading off to Gloucestershire this evening. However, as always Im sceptical about that given the amount of tales they have spun me this passed week. It wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest to see them back in the area again tomorrow morning.

Yeah, I think it's a contractual thing. Movie is greenlit but you gotta get it out in 2017 so he must've thought he could do it.

Maybe with that confidence and the return of Dylan Tichenor we're in for a tighter film with less mountains of footage to shape in the edit. Interestingly or coincidentally the Leslie Jones edited films are his most out there (and had the hardest time finding an audience). PDL. Master. Vice.

from this Variety article about DDL retirement (http://variety.com/2017/film/columns/daniel-day-lewis-retiring-1202477843/)

Quote
Paul Thomas Anderson, who guided Day-Lewis to his most perversely beloved performance, as the sociopathic oil baron who stole John Huston’s voice in “There Will Be Blood,” has now bequeathed him his official final role. In Anderson’s upcoming Christmas release, “Phantom Thread,” Day-Lewis stars as the visionary British fashion designer Charles James, who was one of the most influential couturiers of the 20th century — and who, interestingly enough, retired himself in 1958, at the age of 52, 20 years before his death. Given Day-Lewis’ legendary immersion in the roles he plays (during the shooting of “Lincoln,” he never broke character, insisting that everyone on set, including director Steven Spielberg, address him as “Mr. President”), one has to wonder whether he might have developed an obsessive identification with a designer/artist like James, to the point of wanting to echo the way he exited the fashion world at the height of his powers.

I´ve been investigating (like Doc Sportello) and found some interesting information about the release dates of Paul´s trailers for his last 3 films:

(This info is about the official trailers, i´m not counting the teaser trailers release dates for There Will Be Blood or The Master)

There Will Be Blood (2007)   
Release Day: December 26
Trailer Release: September 7
3 months and 19 days before release day.

The Master (2012):
Release Day: September 14
Trailer Release: July 19
1 month and 26 days before release day.

Inherent Vice(2014):
Release Day: December 12
Trailer Release: September 29
2 months and 13 days before release day.

So with these patterns i assume we can get a trailer for "Phantom Thread" 2 or 3 months before the release day, maybe late september/early october.

Ah, here. Thanks. I assume he'll get asked about it potentially when he does the press stuff nearer the time of Phantom Thread's release.

Not exactly a great bump to the thread but through a bit of IMDb trawling it appears there's more film shot on PTA's Pathé camera on this one.

This is a film I really, really want to see. More so then Inherent Vice.
