Laura Dern Talks 'The Master,' Working With PTA
from cigsandredvines.

As you know, things have been very quiet on "The Master" front for quite some time now. Principal photography is finished and the cast have all moved on to other projects. But lucky for us, those projects will inevitably include interviews in which some intrepid journalist will ask the actor in question about the mysterious 'Master.' Actress Laura Dern, who plays a still unknown role in the film, is currently promoting her new HBO series "Enlightened" when she was asked by The Press Assocation (whatever that is) about her experience on the project.

"It's an amazing experience. Joaquin's such an incredible actor and Philip Seymour Hoffman was in the film, they're doing such incredible work. I think [Paul's] so brilliant and one of our most important visionaries ever in film."
And there you have it, the vault once again becomes sealed. As always, more information when it arrives.


Update 11/1: Dern spoke with Slate Magazine who got a little bit more out of her regarding the project.


Slate: You're in The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson's new movie about a religious guru in the '50s [according to rumors, the character is based on Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard]. Is your character an acolyte of this religion?

Laura Dern: It's someone who is very involved, for sure. You know what I love about Paul, I love a zillion things about Paul like so many of us do, but Paul is old school in the best sense of the word. I was raised in the '70s and I've worked with people I love and I've been on sets with my parents, with people who run a set and require of actors a sense of liberty and freedom and exploration and failure into brave achievement. Other than Jonathan Demme, Paul Thomas Anderson, bless and rest his soul, Robert Altman, who was such a pioneer for Paul and myself, there are very few people making movies like that, so just working on a set with him is so extraordinary. In terms of the subject of the film, and all of the films he makes, he dances so comfortably in the gray. When he takes on the subject matter, any subject matter, he is there to examine what it offers; not just take anything down. It's funny when people think filmmakers are irreverent. It's like, "Ooh, what's he doing. I heard the movie's about dot dot dot." They go, "I bet he's really going to attack it." In fact, he tries to uncover what he loves. What the worth is in something.

I was immediately sure that wasn't an actual trailer, but I'm very disappointed that the opportunity was wasted on a half-decade-old joke.

Agreed.  C'mon, theyarelegion, be somewhat original.  Sheesh!  Oh, by the way, here's a super-exclusive on-set production still from the film.

theyarelegion's gag was fine.

but between RK's been-there-done-that grumpy gramps, ono ruining everything, and S.R. lolling.. this thread really brings out everyone's true nature doesn't it.  

what we need now is good old patient Pozer to clear the ground and set up camp once more..
