Terrence Malick May Shoot *Another* New Film As Early As This Summer
Untitled Romance Starring Ben Affleck & Rachel McAdams Is Starting To Be Show For Buyers
Source: The Playlist

After taking two decades off between “Days Of Heaven” and the “Thin Red Line,” then another seven years until “The New World” and six more years until “The Tree Of Life” which started its limited rollout this weekend, director Terrence Malick is suddenly very, very busy. Last year, he knocked out another film—formerly known as “The Burial”—starring Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper and Jessica Chastain and he’s still got the universe spanning IMAX documentary “Voyage Of Time” (which was once going to be a companion film to “The Tree Of Life”) in the works as well. But the 67-year old helmer is just getting started it seems. 24 Frames have dropped a few updates on where the director is going next, and Malick fans will be thrilled. Not only is the aforementioned, untitled romance now being shopped to buyers—with word coming in that the early footage being screened is even more “experimental” than “The Tree Of Life”—but he’s getting ready to shoot another new film this summer. Of course, details are vague to non-existent at this point, but 24 Frames says that Malick’s production team are being told to keep their summer and fall open for a possible shoot on a new film. The site goes on to claim “he expects to be finished with this one in a matter of months” but we’ll see how it goes. Malick’s lengthy and careful editing process could quickly turn months into years. But damn, with three projects now on his slate it looks like the wait for the next film from Malick wont’ be so long. The untitled romance in 2012? Let’s hope so. We’re sure Cannes would love to him back.

What's next for Terrence Malick after 'The Tree of Life?'
Source: Los Angeles Times

His new movie is coming out this weekend, but hard-core Terrence Malick fans always want to know what's next for the director, even if he himself doesn’t always know. Malick has finished shooting his new film, a drama once titled “Burial” and now without a title. Starring Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams and Olga Kurylenko, its contents have been shrouded in mystery, as is typical fora Malick project. What is known: It’s a love story, and it uses some of the same radical slice-of-life production techniques used on “Tree.” One person who worked on the film described it as even more experimental, in fact. It’s also the first film Malick has made that’s not in period, which should make for a switch for viewers used to his visions of throwback America. There’s no U.S. distributor yet for the Affleck movie, but one person who saw a few minutes that are being shown to foreign buyers said that the meditativeness for which Malick is known is there in spades. There was no discernible story or a voice-over in the footage, but shots of Affleck and McAdams in Malick's trademark man-in-nature style. Of course, given the gaps between Malick’s movies, the big question is when the 67-year-old’s new project will reach theaters. There were at least two sets of reshoots that had the actors flying back to a Paris location after the production was complete, suggesting an elaborate, Malickian level of tinkering. But compared with "Tree," whose haul of effects bogged down the production, Malick's sixth project has considerably fewer visual arabesques. And Malick himself may have offered the biggest clue as to when his new movie might be ready: He has told members of his production team to keep the summer and fall open for a possible shoot of yet another film –-which means he expects to be finished with this one in a matter of months.

Christian Bale Reteams With Terrence Malick For Another New Mystery Film
Rooney Mara, Haley Bennet, Clemence Poesy & Mia Wasikowska Vying For Female Lead; Film Will Shoot In Early 2012
source: theplaylist

For much of Terrence Malick‘s career, his workflow has been defined by single projects taking years at a time to take shape and finish before he moves on to the next one. Now, it seems the guy is making up for lost time. With “The Tree Of Life” hitting theaters this spring, the director currently has his untitled film—aka “The Burial”—in post-production and is also at some stage of development with his “Voyage Of Time” documentary which recently added Emma Thompson as a narrator alongside Brad Pitt. Earlier this year word cropped up that Malick was eyeing staring another film, one that would be small in nature, that would potential shoot late summer/early fall. Not much has been heard since, but it looks like that film is now moving full steam ahead with a early 2012 start being eyed.

Twitch reports that Christian Bale—who starred in “The New World” and was set for “The Burial” but was replaced by Ben Affleck—is set to reteam with the director on the new project. Of course, details are unknown other than it will apparently feature an even smaller cast than “The Burial” (which features Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper and Jessica Chastain) which certainly falls in line with earlier reports that Malick intends “to be finished with this one in a matter of months.” The story will center around two leads, one male (Bale) and one female, with Rooney Mara, Haley Bennet (”Marley & Me,” “Kaboom”), Clemence Poesy and Mia Wasikowska all said to be in contention for the part. And well, that’s it.

Of course, when we’ll get to see these pics is anybody’s guess. The U.K. rights to “The Burial” recently sold to Optimum and we would guess that if indeed its coming next year, another trip to Cannes will be in the works. As for “Voyage Of Time” and this new project whose to say. But with early word that Malick expects to get it done sooner rather than later, that certainly bodes well though anything can happen when the mercurial director gets behind the camera. Hell, his whole vision for the project could change between now and the New Year. But clearly, the 67 year-old director is newly inspired and we couldn’t be more excited. Let’s hope more details arrive soon.

Malick picks his next leading lady
Relative unknown could follow in footsteps of Chastain, Spacek
By JUSTIN KROLL, Variety

Terrence Malick's demonstrated taste for unknown female leads has lifted the careers of Sissy Spacek and Jessica Chastain, and now he's chosen his next femme, who will join the helmer's untitled project with Christian Bale.

Malick is writing and directing the project, and while no deal has been struck, sources tell Variety that the auteur has made up his mind as to who will be in next summer's scheduled shoot. Variety reported earlier Thursday that Hayley Bennett was the one, but sources now say another candidate could close the deal.

Clemence Poesy was another in the mix that, despite Malick's affinity for lesser-known female leads, included Rooney Mara and Mia Wasikowska.

Sarah Green and Nicholas Gonda are producing the pic, expected to shoot next summer. As is customary with the director, story details have not been revealed.

Neither WME, which reps Bennett, nor the producers had comment on the casting process.

Malick is currently in post-production on his upcoming untitled film starring Ben Affleck, set for a 2012 release. Though that cast includes well-knowns Rachel McAdams and Rachel Weisz, auteur's previous projects have featured newcomers like Q'orianka Kilcher ("The New World"), Chastain ("Tree of Life") and Spaceck ("Badlands).

Bennett's highest profile roles were a supporting turn in "Marley & Me" and as Molly Hartley in the 2008 film "The Haunting of Molly Hartley." She's currently working on the pilot "Outlaw Country" for FX.

She is repped by WME and The Schiff Company.

This was taken at Austin City Limits. Terrence Malick was either filming or hanging out with Christian Bale at a live concert. Terrence Malick is making his second movie in less than 12 months. That is amazing.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

You can see from some of the pictures that this film is being shot on the ALEXA camera. So Malick has gone digital.

I find it hilarious that Bale is so calm and easygoing since this seems to be quite a chaotic and on-the-fly shoot. Given the media's representation of him I wouldn't have thought he'd go for something like that. Whatever this is for, I'm looking forward to seeing the end result.

Anyone else think Bale looks like a 90s Tom Cruise in this?

The film he did with Olga Kurylenko was shot on the Red. He also used it on Tree of Life, though I don't think any of that footage made it into the film.
