Reese Witherspoon Joins Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice

Reese Witherspoon

Though she was offered the role that ultimately went to Amy Adams in The Master, Reese Witherspoon now appears to have scored another chance to work with Paul Thomas Anderson. According to Deadline, she’ll star in Inherent Vice with Joaquin Phoenix, Owen Wilson and Benicio del Toro.

Despite funding concerns and waiting until he finished The Master, Anderson is now gearing up to make Vice, adapted from Thomas Pynchon’s cult novel.

The book is a 1970s Californian detective story that sees a stoner private eye called Larry "Doc" Sportello helping a former lover with an intriguing and ever-so-complicated, shaggy-dog-story of a case involving infidelity, mental institutions and policemen called "Bigfoot".

Anderson has long wanted to tackle the book, and is gathering quite the cast (according to The Wrap, Martin Short and Jena Malone are also now aboard) for his latest cinematic outing. With luck, he’ll have the cameras cranking this summer.

Witherspoon has been setting up several projects of late, lining up a role in sci-fi pic Passengers with Keanu Reeves and Fox comedy Get Her Off The Pitch. She’s also set to work once more with Walk The Line director James Mangold on Three Little Words. She’s currently on screen in Jeff Nichols’ Mud and will be seen in Devil’s Knot and The Good Lie.
