There’s been a lot of back and forth over whether David Fincher changed Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl ending, but maybe all this time we should have been fretting over a different auteur-driven literary adaptation. Paul Thomas Anderson has reportedly written an entirely new conclusion for Inherent Vice, based on Thomas Pynchon‘s novel.
Not that Pynchon seems all that upset about it. Indeed, the famously reclusive author even agreed to a cameo in the movie — though he’s so private it’s quite possible no one will even recognize him anyway. Hit the jump for tons more from Inherent Vice, including a new photo of Joaquin Phoenix and Benicio del Toro and details on how Police Squad! served as an inspiration for Anderson.

Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Inherent Vice features some very colorful characters, and to fill them out he’s hired some immensely talented actors, including Joaquin Phoenix, Benicio del Toro, and Josh Brolin.
One we haven’t seen much of yet is Reese Witherspoon, who plays Penny Kimball. That changes today with a brand-new image. Get your first look at Witherspoon in Inherent Vice with her giant 1970 hair after the jump.

Director David Fincher and author James Ellroy have shared interests as they’ve both chronicles characters with grim, all-encompassing obsessions. In fact, the two men have an association that goes back years, to when Fincher considered filming Ellroy’s novel The Black Dahlia. That didn’t happen (Brian De Palma made the film instead) but Fincher and Ellroy have stayed in touch. Now they’re putting together a plan for a ’50s-set noir that could come to life as an HBO series. Read More »
Late last week, a big step was taken forward for True Detective season 2. Series creator Nic Pizzolatto reportedly turned in the script for the first episode of the new season, and the lead for this new storyline is not what we’d heard it might be. In the months since the first season finished, we’d heard rumors suggesting various new directions, from redoing the two-detective structure of the first season, to relying upon a more female-centric cast. Now, it turns out, at least the first episode just centers on one male lead. Read More »
Ryan Gosling may get another chance at a modern take on an LA-set crime film (to offset Gangster Squad) thanks to Iron Man 3 director Shane Black. In the wake of last year’s huge Iron Man success, Black has been taking time to get his next film off the ground. While his Doc Savage film continues to simmer at Sony, his next now looks like it could be The Nice Guys. This one is a 1970s noir Black wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi.
Black is trying to get Gosling and Russell Crowe to sign on for the film, which is being produced by Joel Silver. Read More »

Nearly a decade has passed since the last time we dropped in on Sin City, but it doesn’t look like a whole lot has changed since then. Life looks as grim and brutal as ever in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which follows four noirish storylines as they unfold across the city.
Today, we have five new Sin City: A Dame to Kill For character posters to (re)introduce you the town’s gun-toting, knife-wielding residents, including Nancy (Jessica Alba), Marv (Mickey Rourke), Gail (Rosario Dawson), Dwight (Josh Brolin) and Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Check ‘em out after the jump.

Denis Villeneuve‘s latest film, Enemy, is not for everybody. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a simple college professor who realizes there’s another man who looks just like him, the film is way more complex than it seems. It’s atmospheric, captivating and wholly engaging. From the first minute, it slowly feeds you fascinating information until a mind-blowing, very odd conclusion. Enemy is one of those movies you can’t wait to discuss after you see it. Then, the more you talk about it, the better it becomes.
Enemy opened in limited release last week and expands today into theaters in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Nashville and many others. To celebrate the expansion of this mind-expanding film, A24 Films has given us two cool, behind the scenes images to premiere. You’ll see Gyllenhaal, Villeneuve and more. Check them out below.
