And Stefen wins the "First Person To Crack" contest. (just teasing)

His prize will be a slightly used Little Bill action figure from Mattel.

Perhaps it will turn out that PTA secretly spent the past two years ghost-directing Star Wars: Episode III and that Mace Windu is actually the twin brother of Jimmy from "Hard Eight"

Plus, at the end, frogs fall on Anakin.

I just looked at the site. First i've looked at in weeks. is the news that Daniel Day Lewis might be in his next film? Seems like just speculation to me.

I don't see the actual post yet though.

EDIT: There, it's up.  Oil.

Quote from: ptanderson.comHave you been wondering what PTA has been up to since 2002's Punch-Drunk Love? Paul never ceases to surprise us & it seems his next film will most likely be......."Oil"! "Oil!" is 1927 novel by Upton Sinclair that PTA has adapted. This would be his first film not based on on of his own original screenplays. It's a tale of of scandal, intrigue and politics. Makes sense & ties in nicely to this story reported awhile back. It looks like Daniel Day-Lewis will be the star. I know, that's not too much of a surprise, but that's all the casting I've heard thus far. Lastly, it seems that Paul is still looking for financing, so a studio has yet to be determined . Obviously, a possible release date can't even be speculated at this point. I'm very confident that my information is correct, but it's Hollywood & things can (& do) change on a regular basis. Stay tuned for the latest.

an adaptation of Upton Sinclair's "Oil" from 1927 starring Daniel Day-Lewis? Very nice... Looks like I got a summer read.

A little background on Oil...
    Oil! has been described as
one of the great novels of Southern California and Sinclair's most artful and effective work. Published in 1927, it gave fictional life to the frenzy that followed the discovery of oil in Signal Hill, Huntington Beach and Santa Fe Springs in the early 1920s. In a foreword to a 1997 paperback re-issue, Jules Tygiel wrote that Oil! was more than a portrait of '20's life in Southern California. "[It] ultimately spread far beyond the boundaries of Southern California, encompassing World War I, the Russian Revolution, the Teapot Dome and Elk Hills bribery scandals, the fractious battles of the American left, the morality of youth in the roaring twenties, and a broad spectrum of other issues. Yet, Oil! remains at its core what literary critic Lawrence Clark Powell has called, 'a novel of high California octane...the largest scale of all California novels.'[/list:u]
I wonder if this would be a period piece...
