Let’s get straight to the point with this one. We finally have plot details for Terrence Malick‘s new untitled project, and just in case you’re wondering – which one, here’s the answer – the one with Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams on board.
Yep, we all know that Tree Of Life director is quite busy guy these days, but – his choice, and our pleasure I guess!
So, here’s the thing guys. According to the latest reports this movie “concerns a philanderer (Affleck) who, feeling at loose ends, travels to Paris, where he enters a hot-and-heavy affair with a European woman (Olga Kurylenko).
Said Lothario returns home to Oklahoma, where he marries the European woman, in part for visa reasons. When the relationship founders, he rekindles a romance with a hometown girl (McAdams) with whom he’s had a long history.”
And, let me just remind you that Javier Bardem plays a priest in the movie that Affleck’s character visits for advice, while the rest of the cast includes Rachel Weisz, Barry Pepper, Charles Baker and Jessica Chastain.
Which is quite good, I guess. After all, they promised us a powerful and moving love story, and that’s enough for me!
The good thing, however, is that, according to the person who read the script, there’s a bit of a happier ending than some other Malick movies. Or at least a less ambiguous one than at the end of Tree Of Life. Which is also good, right?
Anyway, we’ll keep an eye on this one. Stay tuned!
