Director Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life
was set to be released in December of this year, but has been pushed back to sometime in 2010. The chief of the film's distributor, Bob Burney, said that the original release date was
Wishful. Itís definitely not going to come out this year.
Malick has spent over a year editing the picture, which stars Sean Penn and Brad Pitt. Pitt was previously attached to Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain
, a film which explored similar themes, before the budget decreased and the roles that were once Pitt's and Cate Blanchett's went to Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz. Pitt and Blanchett did eventually unite to make Babel
and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
, and Pitt went on to make a Tree of Life movie anyway, so everyone got what they wanted in the end!
Below is a video of cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, talking about the magic of working with Malick.
