Details on P.T. Anderson's There Will Be Blood

p.t. andersonFiled under website recommendations I’ve meant to write months ago – for those among us who’ve been waiting on P.T. Anderson’s next cinematic foray since Punch Drunk Love (the cardiganed Emily Watson, sigh) please give your utmost attention to Cigarettes and Red Vines – it’s a labor of love, and a comprehensive online guide to all things P.T.A. They’ve been tracking the progress of Anderson’s next project (not including help lent to Robert Altman’s A Prairie Home Companion), There Will Be Blood, since it was a tiny glean in his eye. Based on the Upton Sinclair novel Oil! (also responsible for The Jungle, which turned the meat-packing industry on it’s ear), set during the 1920’s oil boon in Southern California, the film stars Daniel Day Lewis as an oil developer whose greed and corrupted disposition has turned his son, and the town full of disfranchised workers his own flesh and blood has backed, against him.

Cigarettes has a dedicated There Will Be Blood section with script impressions, a production timeline, and all other available details, including an attached actors list – conspicuously devoid of P.T.’s mainstays – the Philip Seymour Hoffman’s, the Luis Guzm├ín’s, or John C. Reilly’s.

Having just wrapped shooting last week. Anderson will take a month or two off before beginning post-production. In the meantime, enjoy this YouTubed P.T.A. interview on The Henry Rollins Show, wherein the two discuss the upcoming film while still in the pre-production phase.

    Anderson’s newest film has been increasingly difficult to get information from. Sounds like you’re looking forward to it as much as I am.

    this subject, but you seem like you know what you’re talking about!
