Rumor confirmed: Affleck joins Terrence Malick’s next along with Rachel Weisz; Christian Bale out

Talk about a quick confirmation.

According to The Wrap, just mere hours after rumors began circulating putting Ben Affleck in the lead role of Terrence Malick’s next film, his follow up to the long-gestating TREE OF LIFE, we now not only have confirmation that he will indeed be joining the cast, but that one previously announced member has left, and yet another has joined.

The outlet is reporting that while Christian Bale has left the film, both Affleck and Rachel Weisz will be joining Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem, and Olga Kurylenko in the film, which will reportedly start shooting in the first week of October.

Check the full story, after the break.

First off, that’s one hell of a twosome. You really can’t beat adding Affleck and Weisz to your film, and along with McAdams, Bardem, and Kurylenko, that is a really impressive set of thespians. However, the more interesting thing is that locations are already allegedly being scouted, making me wonder what the hell is up with TREE.

If the film is really set to shoot come October, that means TREE is somewhere near the end of its production, meaning that while it may not be hitting festivals, we may very well get the film sometime this year. Could the film actually be a surprise premiere at either Toronto or Venice? At this point, any guess is as good as mine.

However, Malick’s next film is shaping up to be one hell of project. Hopefully it’ll see the light of day before I’m dead. Fingers crossed.
