Joanna Newsom is in Paul Thomas Anderson's new film 'Inherent Vice'


Another day, another one of our favorite music artists working on one of our favorite film directors' latest projects. This time we're seeing reports that songbird Joanna Newsom was spotted on set of Paul Thomas Anderson's (Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood, The Master) newest flick, Inherent Vice. The film is based on Thomas Pynchon's (Gravity's Rainbow) book of the same name and follows a stoner private detective Larry "Doc" Sportello (played by Joaquin Phoenix) who investigates the disappearance of his ex-girlfriend's boyfriend in Los Angeles.

The film boasts an impressive cast - Joaquin Phoenix, Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Maya Rudolph and - possibly! - Sean Penn. Like we said, the film is currently in production and will be ready for a 2014 release.
