Paul Thomas Anderson is prepping his follow up to the Oscar winner THERE WILL BE BLOOD, with The Weinstein Company on board as worldwide distributor. The film stars Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman as an American man who returns home after World War II and establishes a new religion. Joaquin Phoenix co-stars as his main disciple. Referred to by bloggers as Anderson’s “scientology drama”, the film is also looking to cast its female lead, with actresses Amy Adams, Laura Dern and Madisen Beaty in the running. The film will be one of the Weinstein Company’s prominent pre-sale titles at this week’s Cannes Film Festival.
