Paul Thomas Anderson Sets 2020 Return by Going Back to His ‘Boogie Nights’ Roots
Paul Thomas Anderson is gearing up to return to feature filmmaking in 2020, marking his first directorial effort since the theatrical release of “Phantom Thread” in December 2017. Deadline reports the untitled Anderson movie is one of 13 projects that scored California tax credits next year, another being Damien Chazelle’s Paramount release “Babylon” (that film already has a Christmas 2021 release date). Deadline refers to Anderson’s new project as a high school-set movie, and THR has dropped some additional info that makes it sound like Anderson is going back to his “Boogie Nights” roots.

Similar to his breakout 1997 feature, Anderson’s new project will be set in the San Fernando Valley sometime during the 1970s. The main character is a high school student who also happens to be a successful child actor. Anderson’s dramas “Magnolia” (1999) and “Punch-Drunk Love” (2002) were also set in the San Fernando Valley, which is where Anderson grew up.
