Just yesterday we directed you toward some photos snapped from the set of Paul Thomas Anderson’s mysterious new film, which recently began production in England. Those photos may have revealed the title (working or otherwise) for the project, a period drama set in the world of London fashion, which reunites the director with There Will Be Blood star Daniel Day-Lewis — spotted walking among some tombstones in a very attractive sweater. And though it’s not much, a new press release does offer a couple of updates on the project, which, believe it or not, actually does star other people not named Daniel Day-Lewis.

And as both director and actor are always doing the unexpected, maybe you shouldn’t be surprised that the new project takes place in the world of New York fashion.

Although it doesn't open in wide release until next week, Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' has already started gaining traction as a major Oscar contender, with Daniel Day-Lewis' performance as the sixteenth President of the United States being one of the most talked about roles of the year.
