Following its Cannes debut, Terrence Malick’s new feature “A Hidden Life” is reportedly set to get a December 13th limited release in the United States through Fox Searchlight, putting the film right in the path of potential consideration for awards season.
The World War II drama has been called a return to form for the iconic helmer, tackling a movie with a script as opposed to his more dreamlike and improvised efforts of late. It follows a conscientious objector during wartime and stars the likes of August Diehl, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Nyqvist, Valerie Pachner, Jurgen Prochnow, Alexander Fehling, and Bruno Ganz.
Malick is already prepping his next film which will explore the life of Jesus Christ which has had several rumored titles that include “The Last Planet” and “Samarkanda”.
