The wrap has new details about the Terrence Malick project the rumored title is: “The Burial“. The project is romantic drama starring Ben Affleck, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper alongside Rachel. Rachel plays Jane, you can read the partial plot summary below:
Set over a period of years, the film stars Affleck as Neil, a failed writer stuck in a loveless marriage with Marina (Kurylenko), whose expiring visa put pressure on Neil to propose. Neil and Marina have a daughter (Tatiana Chilin) together, but both of them are looking outside the marriage. Neil is drawn to Jane (McAdams) and Marina betrays her husband by having an affair with Charlie (Charles Baker).
Both Neil and Marina seek guidance from Father Quintana (Bardem), a priest frustrated by his inability to live his own life because he’s too busy advising his parishioners on theirs. The couple’s dysfunctional relationship begins to take a toll on their daughter, who starts having problems in school.
Neil and Jane share a kiss, which Jane doesn’t feel bad about because she knows Neil doesn’t love his wife. She plans to wait for Neil to get tired of Marina.
Sound good right? The release is set for 2012.
sad, first rachel isn’t in any scenes with marion cotillard and now she isn’t in any scenes with javier bardem :(
I became a fan of Rachel’s after seeing “The Notebook” kind of by accident. It is now one of my all-time favorites. I saw the “Terrence Malick Project” and figured I might as well leave a post here.
I would simply like to say that you are an excellent actor. You were so good in “The Notebook” and since that is where I first saw you I will probably always see “Allie” when I see you. Don’t let that discourage you because all the greats have to deal with being so good that the fans remember them as a certain character.
By the way, you’re not bad looking either……………
