Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master” confirmed for Venice; Is Toronto next?

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Once The Weinstein Company moved the limited release date of Paul Thomas Anderson’s hotly anticipated “The Master” up to Sept. 14, awards trackers began speculating that the drama would land on programming lists for the major fall film festivals.

One of them already nabbed PTA’s film. Will the others follow?

Venice Film Festival executives confirmed that “The Master” will hold its European premiere at the September event. In reporting this news, HitFix claims that Toronto should be next to add the film.

I have to agree. If “The Master” will be in select cities the week after TIFF opens, there’s no reason for the Weinstein Company not to have it make a splashy debut in Canada (where the bulk of the awards press will be covering every beat of the ongoing awards race).

We don’t know too much about “The Master” just yet, other than the fact that it stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as the leader of a powerful religious cult that already is drawing comparisons to Scientology. Joaquin Phoenix returns to full-time acting to play a wayward man pulled under Hoffman’s wing. Amy Adams co-stars, though really, we’re all geared up because PTA has delivered such masterpieces as “Boogie Nights,” “Punch-Drunk Love” and “There Will Be Blood.” We all want to see what he does next. That amazing cast is just the whipped cream and cherry on top of what’s bound to be a challenging but delicious dessert.
