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!".

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. »
