Daniel Day Lewis directed by Paul Thomas Anderson

DAfter three years of silence, Daniel Day Lewis will once again act in a movie. The project is called There will be blood and is the work of the promising Paul Thomas Anderson, director of superb films such as Magnolia or Boogie Nights among others.

Anderson is the author, as on other occasions, of the script for this film that revolves around a prospector (Day-Lewis), working in some fields with potential on the outskirts of a small town in the state of Texas, and who will come into contact with a family of the place, traditional and very religious. One of the sons is an evangelical pastor who is becoming a celebrity in the area. The script is not original as in other films (for which Paul Thomas Anderson has received two nominations for the Oscars everything is said), but it is an adaptation of the novel Oil (Oil! Originally, from 1927) by Upton Sinclair .

With There Will Be Blood the actor British Daniel Day-Lewis, winner of an Oscar for My Left Foot and nominated twice, for In the Name of the Father and Gangs of New York, thus resumes his career after his last foray went almost unnoticed in The Ballad of Jack and Rose. His nemesis, the preacher Eli Sunday, is played by the young Paul Dano, whom we already saw in the nominee Little Miss Sunshine. Rounding out the cast are Paul F Tompkins (who already had a small role in Magnolia), Kevin J. O'Connor (Van Helsing) and Hans Howes (Terminal Velocity). Shot on a relatively modest $ 25 million budget, There Will Be Blood se will premiere around the world this year.
