After making several films with the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Thomas Anderson will continue that legacy with his son for his next film.

Before his death in 2014 at just 46 years old, the wonderful Philip Seymour Hoffman had worked with renowned filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson on five acclaimed films, including Boogie Nights, Magnolia and The Master.

Because of the issues surrounding filming in California, Anderson’s latest planned movie, which is set to shoot in the San Fernando Valley area, has taken a while to come together. Bradley Cooper is set to appear in the 70s-era tale, but the actor playing the film’s teenage protagonist has been announced, and it’s Cooper Hoffman, the 17-year old son of Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Hoffman junior will reportedly playing a child actor in the film, and the project will mark his acting debut, according to Indiewire.

After a terrible week featuring the untimely passing of the talented Chadwick Boseman, there’s a sliver of consolation in the news that another gifted actor who passed away far too early will have the legacy of his greatest working relationship continued by his son.

More as we hear it.
