Four years after the release of his latest work, one of the most brilliant filmmakers around is about to return to the big screen. A few days ago it was in fact announced the release date of Soggy Bottom, the new effort by the great Paul Thomas Anderson.
On the occasion of the broadcast of de The Hidden Thread, acclaimed film starring Daniel Day-Lewis that will be broadcast tonight on Iris, so let’s go to discover all the known details about the new project by the director of Il Petroliere.
Let’s start by saying that Soggy Bottom is not the official title of the film, but its working title. This has been specified directly by the UAR (United Artist Releasing), the company that will handle the distribution in the United States, which has announced that the title will be released in American theaters in a limited version on November 26, 2021 (the day after Thanksgiving), while the national release will take place on December 25th. In this way, the film will be able to compete for the 2021-2022 season of the Oscars.
Shot almost entirely in Los Angeles during the quarantine, the film (costing about $ 40 million) will be set in 1970 and will star Cooper Hoffman (son of the late, Philip Seymour Hoffman), Bradley Cooper and Bennie Sadfie. Unfortunately the main details on the plot are still unknown, but we know that the story will revolve around the events of a successful young actor (Hoffman), an “old school” director / producer (Cooper) and a politician running for seats (Sadfie ).
