Variety is reporting that Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood, Magnolia, Boogie Nights) is close to turning in his new script which will be a religiously fueled affair:
“a period drama to star Philip Seymour Hoffman as a founder of a new religious organization in the 1950s…The drama does not so much scrutinize self-started churches like Scientology or the Mormons, as much as it explores the need to believe in a higher power.”
Nobody else is signed on yet, but I would expect a killer cast here as always is the case with PTA. No release date yet, but with any luck maybe we can see this time next year.
