Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Thomas Anderson may be assembling a big screen reunion, this time in the world of fashion.

Although no deal is set, sources tell Variety that Lewis is in talks to reunite with Anderson, who directed his Oscar-winning performance in There Will Be Blood, on the auteur's latest movie.

Anderson's reps declined to comment.

Sources say that Lewis, who hasn't made a film since Lincoln in 2012, has been loosely attached to the project for some time. Anderson is still working on a script while meeting young actresses of Eastern European descent to cast supporting roles.

Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures is producing and financing the untitled project. The film will be set in 1950s New York and revolve around the fashion industry, although the plot is under wraps.

Annapurna most recently worked with PTA on The Master and Inherent Vice.

Lewis, who won his third Academy Award for his performance as Honest Abe in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, has kept a low-profile the past decade. Prior to Lincoln, the 59 year-old took a three-year break after Rob Marshall's Nine in 2009. He filmed PTA's There Will Be Blood before that in 2007.

Anderson has kept himself busy in recent years, directing music projects for Radiohead and Joanna Newsom and the documentary Junun, which documented the collaboration between Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood and composer Shye Ben Tzur.

No studio is currently attached to the project.
