Joining Friel are Kyle Gallner ('Jennifer's Body'), Kevin J. O'Connor ('There Will Be Blood') and Oliver Platt ('Fargo'). Veteran star Angelica Huston also stars. »
Production on The Master Cleanse, a fantasy horror-comedy from debut writer/director Bobby Miller, got underway in Vancouver, Canada last week, with the addition of several cast members. Johnny Galacki and Anjelica Huston are toplining. New cast members include Anna Friel (TV's Pushing Daisies), who replaces the schedule-conflicted Chloë Sevigny, along with Oliver Platt -- did you see his marvelous performance in TV's Fargo? -- Kyle Gallner, and Kevin J. O'Connor. Here's the official synopsis for the film: After holding onto heartbreak for several years, Paul (Galecki) decides to restart his life, joining a spiritual retreat designed to cleanse negative toxins from his body.

Radiohead axeman Jonny Greenwood may have just finished recording the score, and the film is in post-production, but as per usual, Paul Thomas Anderson isn't rushing to get his latest out in the world. Warner Bros. has set a December 12, 2014 release date for "Inherent Vice," the Thomas Pynchon adaptation, that tells a 1970s Los Angeles-set story about inept, pot-smoking private detective Doc Sportello as he investigates the case of a kidnapped girl, who also happens to be one of his ex-girlfriends (incidentally, we place it right at the top of our Most Anticipated Films Of 2014 list). The cast for this one is bonkers with Joaquin Phoenix, Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Kevin J. O'Connor, Katherine Waterston, Timothy Simons, Peter McRobbie, Sasha Pieterse, Joanna Newsom, Maya Rudolph and Eric Roberts all with roles big and small. Of course, the next burning »

Warner Bros. has set release dates for two of their upcoming features, the first being Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film, Inherent Vice. The adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel of the same name will hit theaters on December 12, no doubt with a full Oscar campaign behind it and what I would now expect to be a Toronto, Venice, New York or some combination thereof festival premiere. Starring Joaquin Phoenix as 1960s stoner P.I. Larry "Doc" Sportello, the film follows his character as he's by an ex-girlfriend to investigate the disappearance of her wealthy lover. Benicio del Toro, Kevin J. O'Connor, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Jena Malone, Martin Short, Josh Brolin and Maya Rudolph co-star. Also, WB's feature film version of the popular HBO series, Entourage will hit theaters on June 12, 2015 as Adrian Grenier steps back into the shoes of movie star Vincent Chase, together with his boys, Eric (Kevin Connolly »

It's become quite obvious what draws me to the theater more than anything, the work of directors I've come to admire, appreciate and expect great things from. Certainly a film's subject matter adds to that excitement, but most often it's because the directors I most anticipate tell stories I most want to see brought to life. However, what today's list of my top ten most anticipated movies of 2014 illustrates is that even when the subject matter isn't necessarily something in my immediate wheelhouse, the thought of a new movie from one of my favorite directors makes such subject matter immediately more interesting. Or, as in the case with one particular film on this list, the subject matter, the development of the film itself and the talent involved makes it an obvious choice for my top ten, which we'll get to right now... If you've missed any of the previous installments »
