Is this good news or bad?

Okay, I hate Robert Altman. Hate him. Guy hasn't made a good movie in 15 years or so. In fact, I can only point to one or two that are actually just "pretty good". But that's neither here nor there.

Apparently Bob's having a little difficulty staying alive lately. ran a story this morning claiming that Altman's so sick that he needs help completing his next shitpile, "Prarie Home Companion". So who does the studio hit up for this meaningless task? None other than Paul Thomas Anderson, the man some say is Altman's heir (I call bullshit on that, seeing as how Anderson's actually, you know, good). Rumor goes that Anderson's on set at all times, and if Altman is too sick to work, he gives PTA the gist and lets fly. The studio is expected to announce Anderson as the film's executive producer sometime this week.

I find this whole situation a bit annoying, if only because I'd rather Anderson get to work on something original, rather than helping a horny, dying old man cap his career off with yet another misfire. And if you don't believe me about that horny crack, take a look at Bob with his new ingenue, Miss Lindsay Lohan.
