THERE WILL BE BLOOD

A sprawling epic of family, faith, power and oil, There Will Be Blood is set on

the incendiary frontier of California's turn-of-the-century petroleum boom.

The story chronicles the life and times of one Daniel Plainview (Daniel

Day-Lewis), who transforms himself from a down-and-out silver miner raising a

son on his own into a self-made oil tycoon.  

When Plainview gets a mysterious tip-off that there's a little town out West

where an ocean of oil is oozing out of the ground, he heads with his son, H.W.

(Dillon Freasier), to take their chances in dust-worn Little Boston.  In

this hardscrabble town, where the main excitement centers around the holy

roller church of charismatic preacher Eli Sunday (Paul Dano), Plainview and

H.W. make their lucky strike.  But even as the well raises all of their

fortunes, nothing will remain the same as conflicts escalate and every human

value – love, hope, community, belief, ambition and even the bond between

father and son – is imperiled by corruption, deception and the flow of oil.

There Will Be Blood is the fifth film from writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson

(Punch-Drunk Love, Magnolia, Boogie Nights, Hard Eight.) Anderson's screenplay

is loosely based upon the classic, 1920s muck-raking novel Oil! by Upton

Sinclair.  Academy Award® winner Daniel Day-Lewis heads a cast that

includes Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine), Ciar¡n Hinds (Rome, Margot at the

Wedding), Kevin J. O'Connor (Van Helsing, The Mummy) and newcomer Dillon

Freasier.

Anderson and his frequent collaborators JoAnne Sellar and Daniel Lupi produced

There Will Be Blood. The executive producers are Scott Rudin, Eric Schlosser

and David Williams.  The film features cinematography by long-time

Anderson associate and Academy Award® nominee Robert Elswit (Good Night and

Good Luck); production design by Jack Fisk (The New World, Mulholland Drive,

The Thin Red Line); costume design by Mark Bridges (Magnolia, Boogie Nights)

who has worked four times previously with Anderson; editing by Dylan Tichenor

(The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Brokeback Mountain,

The Royal Tennenbaums) who also edited Magnolia and Boogie Nights; and a

resonant score from Jonny Greenwood.
