My hope is, after doing a movie filled with relative unknowns and amateurs in the main roles, he'll do one with the cream of the crop when it comes to pure acting talent. Aside from working with Leo and Denzel for the first time, I'd love to see a movie with Olivia Colman, Lesley Manville, Don Cheadle, Harriet Sansom Harris and other actor's actors who are veterans and true masters of their craft!

For sure…any one of those actors would be great. I think he will probably go in that direction (established actors) for the leads, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see another less well-known actor in a major role again because he was interested in that sort of thing even before Licorice Pizza.

And of course there’s pretty much always some major casting choice in a PTA movie that no one could have seen coming. It’ll be something like, “yeah…well, I’ve known Albert Brooks for years and we’ve wanted to work together, so I sent him the script…”, etc.

EDIT: I said “Albert Brooks” as like a random, out of nowhere hypothetical and then I got curious about any actual connection, so I Googled…and it turns out Brooks was almost cast in Boogie Nights? I must have read that at some point but I had forgotten.

After seeing "Licorice Pizza" I'm even more excited for his next film! If this fun movie with an obsessive attention to period detail is the result of him taking a break in between writing a difficult script -- I can't wait to see the movie that springs from the script he was having trouble with. I just hope that he casts real actor's actors this time in all of the roles.

RE: some of the Mason & Dixon talk from earlier.

I doubt it, but Paul could be dropping some hints in his Zoom name?

Has anyone read a book recently and thought to themselves 'Man, I wish PTA would adapt this for the screen'? If so, what was it?

I love that they've both publicly said good things about each other and that they've met.  This is exciting.

I choose to believe that this is definitely not coincidental.

Side note, is this who he meant by Curran (Joel?) https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0192845/

I thought he meant Alfonso Cuarón, but who knows.

A shocking number of people pronounce Cuarón that way, so yeah.

This is cool. I’m sure they discussed Demme, and I’m guessing they had already met years ago through that common link (Demme) or something along those lines.

So now we have two very intriguing PTA meetings in recent years: Denzel and De Niro. Here’s hoping he’ll meet with Smith, or maybe that has already happened.

I was also wondering recently if he talked with Jim Carrey during Maya’s SNL gig as Kamala Harris…he must have, right? Either way, I’m hoping that Carrey is still on his mind as a casting possibility.
