The wheels are now turning very fast on Paul Thomas Anderson's untitled religious flick, aka "The Master." Yesterday saw Jesse Plemons, David Warshofsky and Laura Dern and earlier today we confirmed Swedish actress Lena Endre joined the cast. Now another long-linked name has signed on the dotted line.

Deadline reports that Lois Lane herself, Amy Adams, will take part in Anderson's film before taking flight with Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" later this year. Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix, the film centers on Lancaster Dodd (Hoffman), who returns from WWII and starts a religion not unlike Scientology, taking Freddie Sutton (Phoenix), a former alcoholic, under his wing. Adams will play Mary-Sue, Dodd's wife in the film, who acts as his caretaker and vigilant lieutenant. The role was offered last year to Reese Witherspoon when the film was initially gearing up to shoot, but obviously, that never panned out and frankly, we think Adams is a much better choice and fit.

Production begins on June 13th and we're sure there will be bits and pieces of casting still to come.
