Apparition Releasing Malick’s “Tree”

Apparition, the new distribution venture of Bob Berney and Bill Pohlad, has announced that it will handle the release of Terrence Malick’s anticipated opus “The Tree of Life” says the trades.

Malick’s fifth film, his first since 2005’s “The New World,” stars both Sean Penn and Brad Pitt and has been the subject of much speculation. Apparition did not announce a release date for the film which Malick has been editing for some time, though it’s expected before the end of the year.

Jane Campion period drama “Bright Star” will be the company’s first release with a September 18th limited bow having just been announced.
