Hey guys, remember way, way back when we told you about Paul Thomas Anderson's new movie, the untitled religious drama that used be called "The Master?" It's okay if you don't recall; trust us, this morning seems like a long time ago to us as well. But now that we've all regrouped over lunch, we've got a new "Master" related bombshell to drop: Amy Adams is going to co-star in it.
According to indieWire, the three time Oscar nominee will be joining Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix in what is shaping up to be a true all-star cast.
But you better read this fast, because at the rate they're going, the movie might be finished by the time you're done with this article.
Once left for dead, the movie formerly known as "The Master" has had a very abrupt rebirth this week, with Phoenix, Hoffman and Adams being joined by Laura Dern among others in Anderson's first film since "There Will Be Blood" won two Oscars and international praise four long years ago.
This time around, Anderson will be leaving the milkshake business behind for a story of religion, with Hoffman playing a WWII vet who comes back from the war and founds a weird religion not entirely unlike Scientology, with Phoenix set to play his alcoholic protege.
So where does Adams fit in? Well, according to indieWire, the acclaimed actress will be playing Hoffman's wife, a character described as his "caretaker and vigilant lieutenant" -- which sounds like just the right kind of role to follow up her "Fighter" success with.
Production is already set to begin in less than two weeks, which means that Adams won't have much time to prepare. But by the looks of things, she'll have plenty of time afterwards to get ready for her next role -- as a four time Oscar nominee.
