Rumor Has It Daniel Day-Lewis Quit Acting to Design Dresses
Daniel Day-Lewis is primarily known for his method acting: it can take him years to fully prepare for a role, and he’s the kind of actor who really likes to immerse himself in the material.

They posted on Tuesday that something was coming Thursday morning, and because Thursday morning is now, that something has been revealed as the music video promoting the first single from their upcoming sophomore studio record Something To Tell You.

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.

There are numerous reasons to be excited for Paul Thomas Anderson’s next project — it’s a new Paul Thomas Anderson movie, for one, but it’s also Daniel Day-Lewis’ first film role since 2012’s Lincoln. Legend has it, the meticulous method actor emerges from hibernation once every five years or so to quietly collect an Oscar before retreating to a hidden cottage in some obscure countryside, where he nestles into his sweaters and slumbers until he’s compelled to feed his ego once again.

You’ve probably already dropped whatever it is you were doing to read this news, which is wise because it’s definitely drop-whatever-you’re-doing-worthy (unless you’re holding a baby in your arms, in which case, maybe don’t drop it).

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.

God and Maya Rudolph are the only ones who know when Paul Thomas Anderson will get around to directing another feature, but it’s not all bad. Time Off Paul Thomas Anderson is still plenty of fun, doing neat-o stuff like heading to India with Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood for an hourlong documentary with Israeli and Indian musicians, or shooting the bull with Quentin Tarantino about The Hateful Eight
