Inherent ViceSep 30 2014

I somehow didn't know or forgot that PT Anderson was doing a movie based on Thomas Pynchon's Inherent Vice. It turns out he totally is and here's the first trailer:

That looks entirely goofy and good.

Bleeding Edge book trailerSep 04 2013

The book trailer for Thomas Pynchon's new novel is either brilliant or the dumbest thing ever.

Fun fact: the phrase "I don't even" was invented to react to this video. (via @GreatDismal)

Pynchon's next novel is about Silicon AlleyFeb 25 2013

According to Penguin's year-end financial report, Thomas Pynchon's next novel will deal with "Silicon Alley between dotcom boom collapse and 9/11". The title is Bleeding Edge.

Next for P.T. Anderson: Pynchon and ScientologyFeb 11 2011

Speaking of Scientology, P.T. Anderson is working on two movies: 1) a film people are calling The Master about a religious movement similar to Scientology, and 2) an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's Inherent Vice.

Last December, this blog was the first to report that Anderson had written a treatment of Pynchon's seventh novel, and was considering doing a screenplay. Now insiders confirm to Vulture that Anderson has, in fact, obtained the blessing of Pynchon and -- in frequent consultation with the eremite novelist himself -- has not only written a first draft, but is more than halfway done with a second.
