With "The Master" now behind him, filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson is turning his attention towards his next project - an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's noir novel "Inherent Vice."

Anderson plans to begin shooting sometime next year and has apparently done much of the script. He says this will be a much more faithful adaptation than his "There Will Be Blood" was of Upton Sinclair’s "Oil!".

"It's more secretarial. The credit should be like 'secretary to the author. But it’s no less fun. In some ways it's just what the doctor ordered right now for me: being more selfless" says Anderson, who adds that the underground comic strip 'Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers' has been an invaluable "research bible" for him.

Set in the 1960s, the story centers around an often stoned private detective in Los Angeles who investigates the kidnapping plot of his ex-wife's new land developer husband. »
