Next Paul Thomas Anderson Film Goes to Focus Features

-

Focus Features is set to partner with writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson on his untitled new film. Anderson and Focus Features collaborated on his last feature Phantom Thread, which garnered six Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Director for Anderson, Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis, Supporting Actress for Lesley Manville, Score for Jonny Greenwood and Costume Design for Mark Bridges, which he went on to win.

Longtime collaborators JoAnne Sellar and Daniel Lupi will produce this new project along with Anderson.

“There is simply no other filmmaker like Paul Thomas Anderson. He is a true original who consistently mesmerizes fans with unparalleled vision and storytelling. We are beyond thrilled to be teaming up once again with Paul, JoAnne and Daniel,” said Focus chairman Peter Kujawski.

Production is scheduled for Spring/Summer 2020 in California. Further details are still forthcoming. Focus Features will distribute domestically, and Universal Pictures International will handle foreign distribution.

Phantom Thread (buy at Amazon.com) opened in theaters in December of 2017 and earned $47.8 million worldwide. The film is set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London where renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.
