Paul Thomas Anderson Reuniting With Composer Jonny Greenwood For His Next Film
In a couple weeks, David Fincher's newest film, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, will be arriving in theaters. In addition to being his second film in two years, the movie is also a reunion between the director at Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, who, along with Atticus Ross, composed the score for the film. But Fincher isn't the only Oscar nominated director deciding to reteam with a composer from an incredibly popular band.
Oliver Weindling, the founder of Babel Label, has revealed via Twitter that Jonny Greenwood will be composing the score for Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming untitled religious drama, formally known as The Master. While Greenwood is best known as the lead guitarist for the British band Radiohead, he has also been writing scores for films since 2003, working with Anderson on the 2008 Academy Award winning There Will Be Blood. The musician's other credits include Anh Hung Tran's Norwegian Wood and Lynne Ramsay's upcoming We Need To Talk About Kevin. The new Anderson film has wrapped production and is set to be distributed by The Weinstein Company, however it doesn't not yet have a scheduled release date.
Said to be about the origins of Scientology, the new movie stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as Lancaster Dodd, the founder of a new religious movement who becomes close with a drifter named Freddie Sutton (Joaquin Phoenix). But as the organization begins to grow, Freddie begins to question the man that helped turn his life around. The film also stars Amy Adams and Laura Dern.
