Future PTA project??

I was going to post this in the topic at the top of the message board, but it is "locked".

Anyway, on the "Boogie Nights" DVD, you can watch Michael Penn's music video "Try".  There, PTA, the director, gives commentary on the video.  In it, he mentions that it was shot in a building in Los Angeles.  Most noteably, the building contains the longest hallway in any building (double-check the fact, if you want).

So.. PTA talked about how he wants to create a movie centering around a number of characters in each room of one particular flood in the building.

Does anybody know if this mixing of characters is what ended up becoming "Magnolia" or if the idea is still stuck in PTA's head?

Sounds sort of interesting.

I think Magnolia was all done when the 'Try' commentary was recorded.

Good idea though. Sounds Moagnolia-esque but he'll do something different for sure :)

A studio decision perhaps  :?

Maybe the next one will be in Torrance... that'd be cool if he made a movie where characters from the other movies reprise their roles in a cameo, thus tying the PTA universe together... hrm... eeenteresting.

Sounds kind of like a Stephen King thing, or, put in a bad context, PTA's own 'Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back'!
