PTA has already set Joaquin Phoenix to play pot-smoking P.I. Doc Sportello in the adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s acclaimed novel (which is something of a shaggy-dog crime noir set in 1970s Los Angeles).

According to Anderson fan site Cigarettes & Red Vines, Wilson would play surfer dude/saxophonist Coy Harlingen; a key role.

Benicio Del Toro is in talks to play Doc’s lawyer, while Charlize Theron is also rumoured to be in the mix for a leading part.

Production begins later this month.
