The suddenly fast-moving Terrence Malick, whose long unproductive period ended with last year’s The Tree of Life, has already completed his next film, called To the Wonder. But the creative process doesn’t always run smoothly: Rachel Weisz, Barry Pepper, Michael Sheen, and Amanda Peet, per Deadline’s report, have all been cut from the film, which still features Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams, among others. Moviefone has a quote from Rachel Weisz (translated from the Italian publication La Stampa): “I had the experience of working with [Mr. Malick] but I will not have the pleasure of seeing my work.” It’s not so bad, Ms. Weisz–you have that new Bourne franchise part, at least! Movieline also notes that actors including Gary Oldman and Billy Bob Thornton were cut from the 1998 film The Thin Red Line, and those guys ended up fine.
