Ben Affleck and Rachel Weisz join Javier Bardem and Olga Kurylenko in Terrence Malick's latest
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Terrence Malick doesn’t do many films, but when he does, he sure knows how to assemble and all-star cast. The guy must be great to work with because he seems to be able to get any A-lister he wants. For his next film, which is being kept uber-secret, but is believed to be a romantic drama, he has enlisted the services of Ben Affleck and Rachel Weisz, who join Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem and Olga Kurylenko. Affleck will replace the previously cast Christian Bale. Supposedly, he’s already finished with THE TREE OF LIFE, but no one knows when that will hit theaters.
Malick takes a lot of time between films and I loved THE THIN RED LINE, but THE NEW WORLD left a lot to be desired. I like the idea of an ensemble romantic drama done properly, so we’ll see what he adds to it. I am disappointed that Christian Bale dropped out. He’s done so many dramas and action films lately that it’d be nice to see him in a different type of role.
