Focus Features and Annapurna Pictures have confirmed that Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film will indeed be called “Phantom Thread” as previously rumored.
Daniel Day-Lewis re-teams with his “There Will Be Blood” director on the film, said to be Day-Lewis’ final feature film, which also released its first synopsis today:
“Writer/director Anderson’s will once again explore a distinctive milieu of the 20th century. The new movie is a drama set in the couture world of 1950s London. The story illuminates the life behind the curtain of an uncompromising dressmaker commissioned by royalty and high society.
The film also stars Lesley Manville (“Maleficent”), Camilla Rutherford (“The Darjeeling Limited”) and Vicky Krieps (“A Most Wanted Man”). Megan Ellison and JoAnne Sellar produce the film which will open on Christmas Day.
