What Is Phantom Thread? Hint: It Involves Daniel Day Lewis and Paul Thomas Anderson *Updated: And Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood

Via Glenn Kilpatrick’s Whitby Photography come photos of Daniel Day Lewis working on his first movie since Spielberg’ Lincoln (2012). The three-time Academy Award Best Actor winner is reuniting with his There Will Be Blood director, Paul Thomas Anderson for an as yet officially untitled film about the London fashion industry circa the 1950s … only, it’s very possible the name has been revealed:

Kilpatrick shared a bunch of gorgeous shots of the ongoing production filming in the seaside English towns of Robin Hood’s Bay and Whitby, via his Twitter account; you can view them all here.

I’m down with anything Anderson and Day Lewis do together, especially if it involves the actor in fine wool suits.

*Updated:  Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood will again score for Anderson; distributor, Focus Features made the announcement:

Continuing their creative collaboration following 2007’s There Will Be Blood, which earned Mr. Day-Lewis the Best Actor Academy Award, Mr. Anderson will once again explore a distinctive milieu of the 20th century. The new movie is a drama set in the couture world of 1950s London. The story illuminates the life behind the curtain of an uncompromising dressmaker commissioned by royalty and high society.

The creative team includes Academy Award-winning costume designer Mark Bridges, marking his eighth consecutive project with Mr. Anderson; Emmy Award-winning production designer Mark Tildesley and BAFTA Award-nominated set decorator Véronique Melery; Academy Award-nominated film editor Dylan Tichenor, and BAFTA Award-nominated composer Jonny Greenwood, each marking their fourth feature with Mr. Anderson; casting director Cassandra Kulukundis, on her seventh film with Mr. Anderson; and lighting cameraman Michael Bauman.”

Phantom Thread (if indeed, that is the title) also stars Lesley Manville (River, Fleming, Harlots) and Richard Graham (Gangs of New York, Whitechapel, Midsomer Murders), and is scheduled for a2017 release.
