Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master' Could Be Released In October

One of the great mysteries of the 2012 movie calendar is whether or not Paul Thomas Anderson's highly anticipated film, The Master, would be released this year. The Weinstein Company will handle domestic distribution and, as was once again evidenced a few weeks back, they're masters at Oscar campaigning. Anderson's film, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams, screams "award season contender" but there had been no formal announcement. Just assumptions about a release window.

There still hasn't been an official release date announced but one of the film's primary producers, Megan Ellison, took to Twitter to give us a hint. Check it out after the jump.

Thanks to the Paul Thomas Anderson site Cigarettes & Redvines for asking, and getting the below response:

It seems like a safe bet we'll see The Master later this year and it'll be in the thick of award season.
