VIDEO: Joaquin Phoenix Talks New Film 'Inherent Vice' on GMA
Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix stopped by this morning's GOOD MORNING AMERICA to talk about working with the star-studded cast of his new film "Inherent Vice." Opening in limited release on December 12, 2014 and expanding on January 9, 2015, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. Check out the appearance below!
When private eye Doc Sportello's ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin...well, easy for her to say.It's the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running THE DAY and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," that's being way too overused-except this one usually leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists... Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp-all Thomas Pynchon. Josh Brolin ("True Grit," "No Country For Old Men") and Owen Wilson ("The Royal Tennenbaums," "Midnight in Paris"); Katherine Waterston ("Michael Clayton," "Boardwalk Empire"); Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon ("Walk the Line") and Benicio Del Toro ("Traffic"); Martin Short ("Frankenweenie"); Jena Malone ("The Hunger Games" series) star in the film.
Oscar nominee Paul Thomas Anderson ("There Will Be Blood," "The Master") directed "Inherent Vice" from a screenplay he wrote based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon. Anderson also produced the film, together with Oscar-nominated producers JoAnne Sellar and Daniel Lupi ("There Will Be Blood"). Scott Rudin and Adam Somner served as executive producers.
