    Does anyone know if he'll ever return? I heard somewhere he was interested in doing a biopic starring Benicio del Toro, but Judging by his last hiatus, he won't do a movie till 2025 or so.

    Regards,
    Nathan

    As you pointed out, that's the trouble with Malick--he's a bit of a recluse and goes away for periods of time. We'll hear from him again when he's ready and not a minute sooner.

    Well, one hiatus after having his illusions of movie-making shattered.

    He was credited as producer on Zhang Yimou's Happy Times (2000), and--last I heard--he was producing (obvious fan) David Gordon Greene's next movie, for which Malick also wrote the script.

    I always thought of Terrence Malik as sort of like the American version of Stanley Kubrick in that he makes movies when he wants to and can go many years without actually making a movie. I totally respect him for that; to be able to do what you want when you want with no pressure from the studios.

    My favorite Malick movie is Days of Heaven.

    I have heard in a few places he is thinking of doing a Che Guevara film with Benicio Del Toro. Thats what I have read in a few good film mags.

    I knew he was born in NY and spent his formative years in the US, I was just curious if his parents were from the UK and hence he wasn't a US citizen. From what I've read it appears that he was a US citizen. (So in general terms an American)

    I read somewhere that Malick was going to make a movie of Walker Percy's The Moviegoer starring Tim Robbins. Might have been just a rumor... [​IMG]

    I just noticed this over at ComingSoon as reported in Variety:

    All emphasis mine.

    I'm looking forward to both films.

    There's more news to add to the report that Chris posted. "The New World", the movie Malick plans to make with Colin Farrell, is going to be a live-action version of the Pocahontas story. Personally I would have preferred for him to make the Guevara story, which sounds like a better fit for his talents. Still, Malick fans should be glad they won't have to wait so long for a new movie this time.

    I rather see FOX convince Malick to edit together an alternate cut of The Thin Red Line for a future DVD release.

    Be Seeing you,

    Just got this mini-press release:



    I just heard that Steven Soderbergh will be directing Che, which Malick was attached to until just recently. Good to know the director has such an interesting back-up plan.

    "Terrence Malick to remake Pocahontas."

    Wow, you can color me surprised. Firstly, because the man is actually making a movie, and secondly, Pocahontas? What? [​IMG]

    In any case, I'm elated. I don't care what he's directing, all I know is that I'll be in line to see it~

    Regards,
    Nathan

    Ugh, I was excited about Che, but now I could care less. Soderbergh is terrible. And Malick working with Colin Farrell? What is the world coming to?? [​IMG]
