Rachel Weisz May Have Been Edited Out of 'To The Wonder'

Terrence Malick's editing process is such that Adrien Brody went from being the lead in 'The Thin Red Line' to barely making an appearance in the film. Not to mention performances by Bill Pullman, Mickey Rourke, or Billy Bob Thorton's voiceover work, all of which were scrapped from the film. 'To the Wonder,' his latest film, may have left Rachel Weisz on the cutting room floor.

This comes from La Stampa, (via The Film Stage), where Weisz is quoted saying: “I had the experience of working with him [Malick] but I will not have the pleasure of seeing my work.” Ouch.

'To The Wonder' will be Malick's sixth film, and the first time he's ever released a film a year after the last. His longest filmmaking gap was from 1978's 'Days of Heaven' through to 1998's 'The Thin Red Line,' and his dislike of publicity has given him a mysterious veil. Something recently must have got to Malick, as he's got at least two more films in the process of shooting now with all star casts (one titled 'Knight of Cups,' the other is currently untitled), which - considering in his first three decades of filmmaking he only made three films - is pretty cool.

And if Weisz feels bad, she can take solace in knowing she wasn't the only actress sacrificed, as Jessica Chastain told Indiewire that she too doesn't expect to be in the movie either. Perhaps they can get together with Mickey Rourke and Bill Pullman and have some sort of party.
