    Terrence Malick Wanted John Travolta & 15 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘Days of Heaven'

    While many directors worry about the sophomore slump, Terrence Malick might be remembered most for his second film, "Days of Heaven." The film stars Richard Gere and Brooke Adams as a lovestruck young couple in early 1900s Texas. After Bill, Gere's character, kills his boss, the couple and Bill's sister Linda (Linda Manz) flee. While looking for work they stumble upon an idyllic farm run by a sickly, yet kind farmer played by Sam Shepard. When the farmer falls in love with Abby, played by Adams, Bill convinces her to enter into a sham marriage with him in the hopes he’ll die soon and leave them his considerable wea...

    Though most audiences are waiting to see Terrence Malick’s latest film "The Tree of Life" as it continues to roll out across the country, the filmmaker’s most loyal fans can’t wait to hear details about what he is working on next.

Baker has a varied CV to date, but Malick's film will definitely be his biggest gig to date and may help bring "Breaking Bad" fans into the ever-growing fold of Malick o...

    Terrence Malick Punched Out A Producer & 10 Other Things We Learned About 'Badlands'

    It has been almost four decades since Terrence Malick's debut feature film "Badlands" and if you haven't seen the film in a little while, it's just as good you remembered it. Starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek, "Badlands" sounds about as un-Malick-esque as you can get. Loosely based on the true ...

    Terrence Malick May Shoot *Another* New Film As Early As This Summer

    Untitled Romance Starring Ben Affleck & Rachel McAdams Is Starting To Be Shown For BuyersAfter taking two decades off between "Days of Heaven" and the "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 ...

    12 Things You Need To Know About The Making Of Terrence Malick's 'The Tree Of Life'

    Terrence Malick's long-awaited “The Tree of Life,” opening today in select cities, is the kind of movie that is designed to be talked about, chewed on, and poured over. It’s a movie that demands you grasp at the unknowable, is challenging and gorgeous in some very deep and profound levels and asks big questions about who we are and where we came from, not just on a human level but on a grander, “how does life exist” scale. (On the same token, its complete lack of an identifiable narrative/dramatic structure and emotional aloofness might drive you batty.)

    New Malick Film With Ben Affleck & Rachel McAdams Reportedly More Experimental Than 'Tree Of Life'

    Brad Pitt Still Narrating 'Voyage Of Time' But It Has Been Pushed Back For Now2011 is a good time to be a Terrence Malick fan. The notoriously reclusive director doesn't talk to press so for the most part, before this year, getting any info on "The Tree Of Life" or anything else he was working on required patience, digging and a bit of teeth pulling. But with the "The Tree Of Life" beginning its rollout this weekend, the producers of the film are talking to press on his behalf and in addition to chatting about the film are also offering up morsels on some other projects Malick is currently cooking up. As you already know, last year he shot a ...
