Nice, just this morning we brought you new information about Terrence Malick's long-awaited, much-anticipated "Tree Of Life," starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn in a father/son generational, likely-poetic, likely existential drama about... life, and the accompanying IMAX doc that comes along with it, "Voyage of Time," that Pitt will evidently narrate (it's got dinosaurs n' shit, don't ask).
Now, it appears that the film is scheduled to hit in 2009 around the holiday season. In a new article about Bill Pohlad and Bob Berney's new distribution company (they're putting out Jane Campion's excellent romance pic "Bright Star") now called Apparition, some release date information on "Tree Of Life," is buried within, because the lucky duo are the ones putting it out. BTW, for those of us trying to figure out what the film is about apparently Apparition is labelling the film a "mystical epic."
"Tree of Life," which hasn't been dated but will be released around the year-end holiday season. The 2009 bow is interesting since Malick is famous for long post-production periods.Three cheers for these guys. Someone give them an award. Also, Malick and co. might want to win the award for Most High Profile Film Still Under The Radar. The way these guys have scrubbed IMDB clean anytime anything remotely important leaks is just astonishing and admirable. The secretive production of "Inception" has nothing on these guys. So "Tree of Life," finally coming out December 2009! Well, that is if the notoriously fussy Malick can finish on time. “We’re still in process,”Berney told Anne Thompson."Terry works on things right to the last minute." We'll relax a little now... but only for a bit (trailer!) [Variety] Thanks dearly to the reader for the heads up.
