There’s more information on Terrence Malick‘s latest than one would usually get from the enigmatic filmmaker, but we still don’t know something as simple as the title. All of us have been calling it The Burial for what feels like a year — and nearly every story on it at least mentions the name in conjunction with the project as a whole — but nothing’s been made official. It’s almost like an art-house a guessing game.
Except, it’s now sort of official that it isn’t called The Burial — when talking to ThePlaylist at the Gotham Awards, producers Sarah Green and Bill Pohlad made it explicitly clear that the title is complete balogna. Read their quote on it below:
“It is not called The Burial. We don’t know what The Burial is. Somebody else attached that name, but there is no movie that we’re working on called The Burial.”
There you have it. Starring Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Rachel Weisz, Barry Pepper, and Jessica Chastain, That Terrence Malick Movie is expected to hit sometime next year.
Making a move not unlike a transition from solid gold to microwavable pizza, title-related news has also come in on the M. Night Shyamalan front. His next film has waffled between being called One Thousand A.E. and the more concise, more mysterious A.E., but recent tweets from the filmmaker have brought a new name to the table: After Earth.
Mentions of storyboards and shooting schedules from the man making the film is as solid a confirmation as I need, but writer Gary Whitta also hopped on the social networking site, taking the opportunity to call it such. It doesn’t affect the movie’s quality, of course, so my mixed expectations on this one remain entirely unchanged.
Starring Will and Jaden Smith, After Earth will open on June 7th, 2013.
What might Malick’s next be called? Do you like the name of Shyamalan’s hopeful return to form?

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
