Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master' Set For October 12 Limited Release

It was a rumor, and now it's official. The new Paul Thomas Anderson film, The Master, will be released by The Weinstein Company on October 12. Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams, The Master tells the story of a man who returns from war and begins his own organized religion. It also features Laura Dern, Jesse Plemons, Fiona Dourif and has absolutely nothing to do with Scientology. Nope. Not at all. The October 12 release will be limited and the film will expand from there. Thanks to Box Office Mojo.
