I'm still alive and the blog is not closed or abandoned. There are too many abandoned pages out there. Not because there are no news about Ryan, we have to stop loving him and his movies, right?
GALLERY: My previous and last post here is dated 23 March.. Ohhh shame on me!!! But in these weeks I'm uploading the images on the gallery that, hopefully, will be ready by the end of April. Yes, I know it's taking too much time but there are many many imagines out there and when you think an album is complete, other pics come out.
Here you can see some screenshots from the Gallery: the photoshoots section (complete), the index and the events, complete til 2010.
HOW TO CATCH A MONSTER: so far we have no news at all about the movie.
Will it be premiered at Cannes next May? We have to wait til 17 April when the official announcement will be released. Well, til today we have no poster and no teaser. And this is not normal as Cannes Film Festival is just round the corner.
Ok, it has happened that a movie entered the selection the day before the Festival begun but how many times? Once? Twice maybe?
Last year Only God Forgives was the most anticipated movie at the Festival: the teaser has been released on 6 January 2013 and the poster on 17 April. So or How to catch a monster is the most anticipated this year and they all want to keep it secret.... Or the movie will be premiered in Toronto in September.. But let's wait few days then.
UNTITLED TERRENCE MALICK PROJECT: let's be honest. This movie is such a pain in the ass (sorry for the bad words). We have no news at all, we have no certainties at all. From the pictures taken on the set it seems Ryan and Rooney have the main role but who knows!?
Others actors are supposed to be in as we saw them in many images:Natalie Portman, Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett ( who are supposed to be also in Knight of Cups), Val Kilmer, Berenice Marlowe (who said she is a a triangle with Ryan and Rooney) and Michael Fassbender. After closing the set in Austin in early November 2012, Malick with Ryan, Rooney and Michael flew to Yucatan (Mexico).
But.... Bale said he could be cut off as he shot only 3/4 days. But also Fassbender said he is not sure to be in the movie in the end.
During Berlin Film Festival in February, AJ Edwards (Malick's assistant) said 2 movies will be released this year: Knight of Cups (and I was told the movie has been presented to Cannes selection though we don't know if it has been chosen) and the Untitled (to be premiered in Venice or Toronto). But then Lubezky (cinematographer who works with Malick) said KoC could not be in Cannes and the Untitled could be released in 2015. So what we have? We have nothing. We have 2 men who are near to Malick and say opposite things.
Let's read between the lines.. Maybe - just my opinion as nobody can know what's in the mind of another person - Malick's desire is to premiere KoC in Cannes and the UTMP in Toronto. If KoC couldn't achieve Cannes, he may change his plans and try again for the first one to enter a late summer festival.
I've got the feeling To the wonder was the first movie of a kind of a trilogy where the UTMP is the last one and can't be released before knight of Cups.
But all we can do is be patience. Very patience!
Have a good week end my dearest.
