I was not the biggest fan of Terrence Malick's latest film The Tree of Life, some people think he's a genius, I think he didn't know what in the hell he was doing with Tree of Life. Some people might say it's just over my head, to that I say if it makes you feel smarter for liking Tree of Life, the more power to you. Because I feel smarter for not buying into it.
He's already made another project that has yet to get a title which stars Ben Affleck, Jessica Chastain, Rachel McAdams and Rachel Weisz. This film has been shot and is currently in post production. Chances are it will be released sometime in 2012.
Malick is on a roll right now with the filmmaking, it's also been reported that he's got another untitled film already gearing up to shoot, and Chrsitian Bale has signed on to star in it. The movie is scheduled to start shooting in early 2012. Sources have revealed "that this will be a much smaller cast than the project Malick currently has in post, the story driven by a pair of dominant leads, one male and one female. Word is Malick is currently making a decision between a quartet of young actresses - Rooney Mara, Haley Bennet, Clemence Poesy and Mia Wasikowska - for the female lead."
There is no information on what the story will entail, but knowing Malick there won't be a story to follow anyway.
