New reports are suggesting Reese has been offered a role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s next film – below are two reports with further details:
Reese Witherspoon Offered A Role In Paul Thomas Anderson’s Untitled Relgion Pic? Shooting Starting In June?
Things have been pretty quiet on the Paul Thomas Anderson front and his new untitled religion picture, affectionately known as “The Master” by fans.
Loosely — or not so loosely — based on the life of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard (read our review of a very early draft of the script), we know that Philip Seymour Hoffman will play the messianic lead, Jeremy Renner will play Freddie Sutton, the drifter character that becomes The Master’s right hand man, and we know that Universal passed on the project and River Road is footing the bill (the company that produced Terrence Malick’s “Tree Of Life” and Doug Liman’s “Fair Game”; Honcho Bill Pohlad is also an investor in distributor Apparition, so don’t be surprised if the film ends up there).
Now comes a few more details from the latest issue of Production Weekly. According to their intel, Reese Witherspoon has been offered a role in the picture and the production is eyeing a June start date. Producing is John Lesher, Pohlad and Jo Anne Sellar.
June is next week if it actually starts on the first. Could the production really be this ready to go and no one’s really reported that yet?
Many news sources are reporting on Robert Pattinson having cut his hair (shocking!), and on a recent appearance on the Ellen Show, he confirmed it was for Water For Elephants. He also stated that work on the film starts today – May 20th – in Los Angeles, and photos can be seen at Celebrity-Gossip.net of him on the set today. No sign of Reese yet, but I will keep my eyes out and post the first set photos as soon as I find any! Feel free to post a comment here if you come across any.
‘It’s about a circus in the 1930s based on a book called Water for Elephants with Reese Witherspoon’. – Robert Pattinson on Water for Elephants
EDIT: I’ve been looking for more details, and come across a video of Reese talking about the project, and a further quote from Robert Pattinson.
“It’s set in the Depression era, when circuses traveled by train and this guy runs away and jumps on a train to be a hobo and by accident, he doesnt realize it’s a circus train. He becomes part of this world because he has no life to go back to and ends up falling in love with the ringmaster’s wife, played by Reese Witherspoon. The ringmaster just happens to be kind of a schizophrenic as well. He’s a most charismatic and terrifying person. He’s Christoph Waltz from Inglourious Basterds. I did a read through yesterday with him. He was sitting right next to me. It was a little terrifying.” – Robert Pattinson
Hi fans, I just wanted to drop in and update you on all on the status of the site. Lisa has decided to drop out of co-owning the site for various reasons, so now it is just me, Jess, keeping the site going! Updates will be slow for the next few weeks as I finish up at University. After that though, I will have more time to work on re-vamping/re-building the site.
As we’ve mentioned numerous times there will be a new layout, all the content will be updated and new content will be added. The Gallery also needs to be re-built, and just this weekend I’ve been saving and sorting photos that will be uploaded in time. There’s lots to do, but please do bear with me as I will be re-building the site to return it to it’s former standard! I’m excited about getting to that point, and hope you are too.
Just stay tuned for tons of updates here in a few weeks!
