Filmmaker Terrence Malick does not like being rushed, so much so the directors of both the Venice Film Festival and Toronto Film Festival aren’t holding their breath that his latest film, “The Tree of Life”, will make it to their fests.
“None of us really expects that to happen at this point… It would be a lovely surprise, but we’re not holding our breath. We know he’s definitely still working on the film, and he’s tired of being pushed by people. We’ve backed off and Venice has backed off” TIFF co-director Cameron Bailey told The Toronto Star (via The Playlist).
‘Tree’ scored a PG-13 rating last month and was said to be near completion a while back, then again Malick is famous for working on and editing his films right up until the last minute.
