PTA Served As DP On Fashion Film, Which Is Definitely Not Called "Phantom Thread"


Today, Indiewire confirms what we've been suspecting for some months now: Paul Thomas Anderson did indeed serve as his own cinematographer on the upcoming fashion drama that has loosely (though no less affectionately) been known as Phantom Thread.

Indiewire confirms in the same story that "Phantom Thread" is only a placeholder title for production purposes and that the eventual one-sheet will bear a different name. That's just fine, though. We can still use it until we get a better one.

Happy Birthday, PTA!

We here at C&RV would like to take a moment to wish the happiest of birthdays to Mr. Paul Thomas Anderson, who turns 47 today. Obviously, we owe it all to you sir.

And many more!

Fashion Film To Be Daniel Day-Lewis' Final Acting Role

Well, not exactly the news we wanted to be sharing today, but also not exactly the most surprising news in the world: Variety reported today that Daniel Day-Lewis has announced his intention to retire from acting following the release of Paul Thomas Anderson's new film, which is informally still known as "Phantom Thread" and quietly wrapped principal photography last month.

DDL's spokesperson says in the Variety story that "Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor. He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject."

It goes without saying, this is our loss but it only intensifies our eagerness to see what Day-Lewis' farewell performance will look like come Christmastime.
