The movie adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s 2009 detective novel Inherent Vice (Penguin Press) has just been scheduled for Dec. 12 of this year, which Deadline characterizes as “a plum awards-season release date.” Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (The Master), the movie stars Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson and Benecio Del Toro.
Also releasing that day is the live-action childrens adaptation, Paddington, “inspired by” the 1958 series which begins with A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond. It is being reissued in July by HarperCollins with illustrations by R.W. Alley and the shortened movie title of simply Paddington.
Baby Gap is also featuring tie-ins in the form of a clothing line.
