Haim Singer and Cooper Hoffman to Co-Star in Paul Thomas Anderson ’70s Drama

Cooper Hoffman, the son of Oscar-winning actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman, is starring in Paul Thomas Anderson’s untitled 1970s-set coming-of-age story. Hoffman is playing the child actor at the center of the movie, which involves multiple storylines and is set in the San Fernando Valley. While the project will feature an ensemble of actors, including Bradley Cooper, Hoffman is the star of the film, with singer-songwriter Alana Haim of the family trio Haim.

Anderson wrote and will produce the movie via his Ghoulardi Film Company banner, along with Sarah Murphy. The project, which jumped to MGM from Focus Features, is now filming on location in the San Fernando Valley. MGM had no comment on the casting. Anderson and Phillip Seymour Hoffman were longtime artistic collaborators, with a professional relationship that began with the writer-director’s 1996 feature debut Hard Eight, and continued through most of Anderson’s catalogue including Boogie Nights, Punch Drunk Love, Magnolia and The Master.

Hoffman, who won an Oscar for Capote, died at 46 in 2014. The younger Hoffman and Haim are both making their respective acting debuts in the feature. Although Haim has previously worked with Anderson on a number of music videos including those for tracks “Summer Girl” and “Little of Your Love.”
