Paul Thomas Anderson isn't waiting around to get his next project started, As initially reported by Cigarettes & Red Vines, the auteur will begin principal photography this month on his follow-up to "The Master," "Inherent Vice." Warner Bros. is financing the project.

Robert Elswit, who has worked with Anderson and won an Oscar in 2008 for "There Will Be Blood," will return as director of photography. And Anderson, remaining impervious to digital, has chosen to shoot on 35mm film stock. (Warners' chief Jeff Robinov is used to this with Christopher Nolan.)

Based on the noir-ish novel by Thomas Pynchon, "Inherent Vice" takes place at the end of the 60s in Los Angeles, centering on the foibles and follies of pot-smoking private eye Doc Sportello. While Robert Downey, Jr. was rumored to star, Anderson has elected to reunite with never dull actor's actor and "The Master" Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix, who will play Sportello.
