Paul Thomas Anderson’s (“The Master) next film is shaping up. “Inherent Vice”, an adaptation of the novel wit the same name already stars Joaquin Phoenix, Benicio Del Toro and Owen Wilson. Now Reese Witherspoon, Jena Malone (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”) and Martin Short have joined the cast. This is quickly turning out to look like one of the most intriguing casts I’ve seen put together in a little while.
