Story by Jack Foley

JOAQUIN Phoenix is in talks to reunite with Paul Thomas Anderson for Inherent Vice.

Adapted by the writer-director from Thomas Pynchon’s novel, the drama would follow the fortunes of a pot-smoking detective as he investigates a kidnapping case over several years.

Anderson has already penned the screenplay and, at one point, had Robert Downey Jr interested.

Phoenix worked with Anderson on The Master and has been Oscar nominated for his performance.
