After acclaimed collaborations on “There Will Be Blood” and “The Master,” director Paul Thomas Anderson has tapped Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood to score his upcoming movie “Inherent Vice,” according to Film Music Reporter.
A representative for Warner Bros. did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
According to Film Music Reporter, Greenwood will record the score this month with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London.
While Greenwood’s score for “There Will Be Blood” was ruled ineligible for an Oscar nomination, it did earn him a Grammy nomination.
“Inherent Vice,” which is based on the 2009 novel by Thomas Pynchon, stars Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Benicio del Toro, Reese Witherspoon, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Katherine Waterston, Joanna Newsom and Anderson’s wife Maya Rudolph.
Phoenix plays drug-fueled detective Doc Sportello, who is takes with investigating the case of a missing girl in Los Angeles in the ’60s.
Anderson produced the crime comedy under his Ghoulardi Film Co. banner along with JoAnne Sellar and Daniel Lupi.
Warner Bros. will release “Inherent Vice” this year, and speculation is rampant that Anderson’s latest will premiere at one of the fall film festivals. The studio is no stranger to Greenwood’s ethereal music, having used Radiohead’s song “Codex” during a haunting sequence in “Prisoners.”
