The Way of the Wind

There was a time when receiving a new Terrence Malick film to premiere was like waiting for paint to dry — and while we are far from the almost decade passing between projects there was a tremendous amount of output after Tree of Life when he premiered To the Wonder (2012), Knight of Cups (2015) and Song to Song (2017) in a five year stretch. Soon to enter it’s third year in post production, The Way of the Wind is nonetheless an ambitious project — perhaps in the same scope as A Hidden Life (2019). We know there’ll likely be some performances left on the cutting room floor but we expect to see Géza Röhrig as Jesus Christ, Mark Rylance as Satan and Matthias Schoenaerts as Saint Peter — perhaps on the Croisette this summer.

Gist: The Way of the Wind relays several noted episodes from the life of Jesus Christ (Rohrig), supposedly with a dark, genre twist.

Release Date/Prediction: This will either be a return to Cannes or another year in post.
