What do we know so far about "Inherent Vice"? Frankly, not a helluva lot outside of the fantastic ensemble cast and the return of Johnny Greenwood to the composer's podium. And even with a release date set for later this year, "Inherent Vice" was curiously absent in Warner Bros. presentation this week at CinemaCon (though we really don't see Paul Thomas Anderson being convinced by anybody to splice sizzle footage from his movie for an industry conference). But there has been one person talking loudly about the project: Josh Brolin.

 The 2015 Best Picture Contenders, Premature pics
The star of "Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past" and the singer from 30 Seconds Of Mars are Oscar winners, "12 Years A Slave" beat "Gravity," Adele Tazeem became the most famous non-existent person on the planet, and no one's stopped talking about selfies for about 72 hours. The streets of LA are now full of discarded The Weinstein Company interns, who haven't seen daylight for months and are only capable of saying the words "Everything you are and everything you have is 'cos of that butler." Yep, the 2013/2014 awards season has come to an end.

Oldboy, Josh Brolin
When he considered taking on an American remake of Park Chan Wook's “Oldboy," screenwriter Mark Protosevich (“I Am Legend”) knew the score. Much of our time during a recent Los Angeles roundtable was spent on his reasons for adapting the new Spike Lee-directed film, having heard the many complaints and eye rolls when the project was announced. And surprisingly, he counts himself among that crowd. “I initially heard years ago the idea of Justin Lin directing a remake, and my first reaction was, 'Oh, really?' " Protosevich said. “Which I think is the reaction of a lot of people: if you love the original, that instinctive, gut reaction part of you says, 'Aw, what's wrong with leaving the original alone?'

You want Eric Roberts in a movie? Just call him. Because seriously, look at his IMDB page—dude will take whatever comes his way and he's got about fifty kajillion projects on the go. He doesn't discriminate either. In the same year he popped up in "The Dark Knight" he also did a stint on "Entourage" and appeared in "Witless Protection" with Larry The Cable Guy. And yet even with all that, one part he's played seems to have flown safely under the radar. Yep, he's in Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice."

Josh Brolin Calls 'Inherent Vice' Shoot "Great" & "Absolute Fucking Chaos"

These days, a shoot on a Paul Thomas Anderson film tends to involve a close knit bunch of people, sworn to secrecy, and indulging in wherever his imagination might go next. While not quite Terrence Malick in terms of jumping off script and going off to shoot the migration of a rare species of bird, Anderson does shoot a lot of film, and as fans found out with "The Master," he leaves a lot on the cutting room floor. And we'd wager that will be the same for his upcoming adaptation of "Inherent Vice," particularly if Josh Brolin's words are anything to go by.
