Day-Lewis won an Oscar for his performance in Anderson's 2007 film 'There Will Be Blood'
Daniel Day-Lewis and director Paul Thomas Anderson are reportedly planning to work together again.
Day-Lewis, who won an Oscar for his performance in Anderson’s 2007 historical drama There Will Be Blood, is said to be “in talks” to star in the director’s new movie set in the ’50s fashion world.
According to Variety, Anderson is still working on the film’s script while auditioning “young actresses of Eastern European descent” for supporting roles. All plot details are being kept tightly under wraps.
Day-Lewis, who is said to have been “loosely attached” to the project for some time, has not accepted a film role since 2012’s Lincoln, for which he won his third Best Actor Oscar, more than any other actor. Notoriously selective with the roles he takes on, Day-Lewis has made just seven movies in the last 20 years. He won his first Oscar for his performance as a man born with cerebral palsy in 1988’s My Left Foot.
Anderson’s last feature film was his 2014 adaptation of the famously complex Thomas Pynchon novel Inherent Vice. He has since directed Joanna Newsom’s ‘Sapokanikan’ and ‘Divers’ music videos and Radiohead’s ‘Daydreaming’ music video. Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood has composed music for his last four film projects.
