Joaquin Phoenix Goes Retro in New Set Photos From ‘Inherent Vice’

Maya Rudolph also seen on set

Paul Thomas Anderson’s upcoming “Inherent Vice” is moving along quickly, with the latest set photos showing star Joaquin Phoenix in his 1960s attire and the addition of Maya Rudolph to the cast. The Warner Bros. period detective story is based on the Thomas Pynchon novel and is shooting in various L.A. locations.

Set to play detective Doc Sportello, Phoenix was photographed with bushy sideburns, sporting a panama hat and sunglasses. The photos also caught a very pregnant Rudolph, Anderson’s longtime partner, who is looks to be playing nurse Petunia Leeway. The couple already have three children.

Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Josh Brolin, Benicio del Toro and possibly Sean Penn are also on board the project that is set for 2014 release.

Anderson’s productions are often shrouded in secrecy, with little casting news and scarce behind-the-scenes footage, but as Anderson’s first studio pic since Sony’s “Punch Drunk Love,” “Inherent Vice” is already looking like one of his higher-profile projects.
