More Details Emerge On Terrence Malick's Next Film; Javier Bardem & Barry Pepper Will Play Priests

Now that we know “The Tree Of Life” will finally hit theaters in 2011, we can start obsessing on the director’s next project, the untitled feature that currently is shooting in Oklahoma.

Starring Rachel McAdams, Ben Affleck, Javier Bardem, Rachel Weisz and Olga Kurylenko, plot details are as usual completely under wraps, but during the film’s production, numerous pics and video of Malick and his crew shooting the film have made their way online. Now, more pics emerged thanks to local Osage County newspaper The Bigheart Times, along with a couple intriguing bits of info.

First up, the solid and continually underrated Barry Pepper has joined the cast of the film and along with Javier Bardem, plays a priest in the pic. So what does this indicate about the plot? We have no idea except that perhaps there will be some thematic crossover from “The Tree Of Life.” The article goes on to indicate that shooting wrapped in Osage County last week, but no word yet on how many work weeks are slotted for filming. And of course after that comes Malick’s painstaking editing process, so this is one is still a long time from being seen (hell, we’re still waiting on something official from “The Tree Of Life”; a release date even, not to mention an official still or trailer).

But, we’re mostly just thrilled not to have to wait a decade for another Malick film. That said, we don’t expect this one to be ready until 2012 at the earliest so we will have to be patient. Two Malick films within such proximity is something to be excited for. — KevinJagernauth
