It was an unfortunate turn of events when Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming film, 'The Master,' was "postponed indefinitely." We were losing our chance to see Phillip Seymour Hoffman as a man who makes his own faith-based organization, and turns a drifter (Jeremy Renner) into his "lieutenant." However, though the world of creative modern religion remains outside our cinematic grasp, Anderson might just have found a worthy substitute in the satirical, postmodern framework of Thomas Pynchon.

In what would the first English-language adaptation of Pynchon's work ('Gravity's Rainbow' was turned into the German film 'Prüfstand VII'), new reports claim that Anderson wants to adapt the novelist's most recent tome, the 2009 novel 'Inherent Vice.'
