Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis are set to reunite for the first time since 2008 for a new film about fashion in the 50s

Daniel Day-Lewis is set to reunite with director Paul Thomas Anderson for his first film role since 2012.

The 59-year-old actor hasn't featured in a big blockbuster since 'Lincoln' four years ago but is keen for an explosive comeback as he joins a new flick about the 1950s fashion scenes.

Rumours that the Irish hunk and the American film director - who collaborated on the 2008 hit 'There Will Be Blood' - were planning to reunite began to swirl earlier this year but the news was seemingly confirmed at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada recently, according to the BBC.

The forthcoming film is yet to be given a name and any details surrounding the plot are being kept under wraps but it's believed it will hit the big screen next year.

Meanwhile, Day-Lewis is no doubt looking forward to sinking his teeth into another gritty film with Thomas Anderson.

'There Will Be Blood' was a drama fuelled by family, religion, hatred, oil and madness, and focused on a turn-of-the-century prospector in the early days of the business.

Anderson - whose other credits include 'Punch-Drunk Love', 'Magnolia', 'Boogie Nights' and 'Hard Eight' - wrote and directed the title, which was his fifth feature length film.

Since then, the 46-year-old filmmaker has been busying himself with a foray in to the world of music and directed Radiohead's 'Daydreaming' video and Joanna Newsom's 'Divers' and 'Sapokanikan'.
