The film adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice finally has a release date.
Warner Bros. has set release dates for two of their upcoming features, the first being Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film, Inherent Vice. The adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s novel of the same name will hit theaters on December 12, no doubt with a full Oscar campaign behind it and what I would now expect to be a Toronto, Venice, New York or some combination thereof festival premiere.
Starring Joaquin Phoenix as 1960s stoner P.I. Larry “Doc” Sportello, the film follows his character as he’s by an ex-girlfriend to investigate the disappearance of her wealthy lover. Benicio del Toro, Kevin J. O’Connor, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Jena Malone, Martin Short, Josh Brolin and Maya Rudolph co-star.
