Paul Thomas Anderson films in London
The next feature from writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson is now in pre-production in London with filming due to take place next year.
Daniel Day-Lewis is reportedly attached to star in the film, much of which is under wraps. It is thought to be set against a backdrop of the world of London fashion in the 1950s, and comes from LA-based Annapurna Pictures.
