Paul Thomas Anderson is closer to making that adaptation of Inherent Vice than anyone who endured the last two five-year gaps between films would have any right to expect. JoAnne Sellar, Anderson’s producer since 1997’s Boogie Nights, says that Vice, the first-ever adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel, is primed to film in late April. Meaning we might soon know if PTA and Joaquin Phoenix are really teaming up again.
