Mainstream Malick

Terrence Malick’s long time editor, Billy Weber, talked to The Playlist and while he isn’t working on the two Natalie films – Knight Of Cups and Untitled – he does have a little bit of info to divulge.

Weber says despite reports, Malick’s next two films are likely not going to be as experimental and dialogue-free as “To The Wonder.” “’To The Wonder’ is a meditation. I don’t think ‘Knight of Cups’ or the next one will be like that, but I’m not positive…I know what the story is. There will be more dialogue in it,” he said.

I don’t for a second think either film will be conventional, but maybe a softening of his artier ambitions will let a few more people into his world.
