    Default The Master...P.T. Anderson

    Anderson’s THE MASTER Has Distribution (And A New Story) | CHUD.com

    So I’ve kept up with Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master pretty closely, and it’s definitely been a roller coaster ride of disappointment and excitement as the film was announced, poised to begin, collapsed, was triumphantly saved, has flirted with cast members, and now we can say for sure that the film will be his next, it has a distributor, and it starts shooting June 13th.

    It’s also a different movie now.

    Without getting too dramatic, Anderson has apparently rewritten the script in such a way that the film sounds less like a look into the creation of a cult formed around a vaguely sinister, charismatic figure, and more about the creation of a belief system as a reaction to the horrors of the world. Deadline describes the script as being about “a man who returns after witnessing the horrors of WWII and tries to rediscover who he is in post-war America. He creates a belief system, something that catches on with other lost souls.”

    Those details could certainly fit within the old framework of the original synopsis, which revolved around “a charismatic intellectual who hatches a faith-based organization that begins to catch on in America in 1952” and his “lieutenant” that grew wary of the cult’s activities. That said, word is that the script has been “greatly overhauled”, so it would be silly to assume we’re talking about the same kind of story, even if we don’t know if it’s the plot, themes, or tone that has changed most drastically.

    Ultimately it doesn’t matter- PTA has been empowered to tell a story he wants to tell, how he wants to tell it, and if he’s gravitated to something different with all of his new-found resources then we’ll probably be treated to a more pure vision.

    Paul Thomas Anderson

    Variety broke this latest news on the film. Close will play one of the main character’s “leading disciples” but they weren’t sure who Dourif (the daughter of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Lord of the Rings actor Brad Dourif) would be playing.
    OOOfa click the link. Sadly, Dourif's daughter looks...just like him.
