The Master

Behind the scenes pics from PT Anderson's The Master

1:00 PM on 12.12.2011 // Hubert Vigilla

As we're still waiting for more details about Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master to emerge, BlackBook recently published some fine behind-the-scene photos from the film. These pics taken by Jack Erling are of extras rather than the stars, but there's some snappy vintage clothing on display.

The Master stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, and Laura Dern. It takes place during the 1950s, and centers on a charismatic religious leader (who may or may not be an L. Ron Hubbard analog). The score will be done by Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead, who also provided the score for There Will Be Blood. The film will make its debut at Cannes and will probably be out by this time in 2012.

In addition to the pics in our gallery, we've also got a brief tease about Anderson's adaptation of Inherent Vice by Thomas Pynchon. Robert Downey, Jr. talked very briefly with MTV about it, and we have the video after the cut.

Okay, yeah, not much information in that, but the possibility is certainly there, and Downey, Jr. seems perfectly okay with the adaptation happening.

Inherent Vice is Thomas Pynchon's latest novel, and also his most mainstream and easiest to adapt. It's one of his California books, which are not as grand in scope as his big novels (V., Gravity's Rainbow, Mason & Dixon, and Against the Day), but hey, it's still Pynchon.

Inherent Vice follows the bumbling adventures of pothead private dick Doc Sportello. It all starts with a kidnapping plot his ex-girlfriend tips him on and then becomes Pynchonesque-er from there. Since you've come all this way, I've included a trailer made for the book Inherent Vice. It features the voice of Thomas Pynchon himself.
