It's Halloween and it seems that today's treats are bits and bobs about Terrence Malick's next, untitled film (aka "The Burial"). First word cropped up that little known American Indian classical composer Jerod Tate would be providing the score. But in addition to the cast, which currently includes Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper, Charles Baker and in a small role, Jessica Chastain, it looks two more stars popped up on the set that we didn't previously known about.

It's Halloween and it seems that today's treats are bits and bobs about Terrence Malick's next, untitled film (aka "The Burial"). First word cropped up that little known American Indian classical composer Jerod Tate would be providing the score. But in addition to the cast, which currently includes Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper, Charles Baker and in a small role, Jessica Chastain, it looks two more stars popped up on the set that we didn't previously known about.

The eagle-eyed folks at The Film Stage have done some digging and revealed that both Amanda Peet and Michael Sheen headed to Oklahoma to take part in the shoot last year. The former expounded on her experience on the set, which for many who work with the director, is unlike anything they usually experience.

"I wasn’t there for very long, and we worked really long hours, so I didn’t really get a huge taste of it, but it was really beautiful [Malick] couldn’t have been lovelier. He has a very, very particular way of shooting," Peet explained to LA Story this spring. "He calls things out to you while you’re shooting, and it’s very, very different than other work that I’ve done…You just go to work, and they do a master shot and then a medium and then a close-up and then a close-up, and he’s nothing like that. He’s like a jazz musician. There’s a lot of variety, and he doesn’t do the same thing twice. He improvises and he lets you riff, and then he’ll shout something out to you that he wants you to say in the middle of the scene. It’s a very mysterious and wonderful, magical process."

As for Sheen's revelation, it was a bit more cryptic. Doing press rounds for "Midnight In Paris" during the summer he said, "Well I’m very excited to be able to work with people like Woody [Allen] — and Terrence Malick as well, this year. Hopefully I’ll be able to carry on working with these people whose work I love to watch." It's safe to say he's talking about the untitled drama, but who knows, maybe he's the wiseass narrator of "Voyage Of Time."

Of course, given the star power present, doesn't mean any of these folks will make the final cut (just ask anyone who worked on "The Thin Red Line"). Malick is ruthless editor, shaping his movies both as he shoots them and well after the fact. So if you wind up seeing the movie and there is no Amanda Peet, but a lot of scenes of wheat during magic hour, you'll know why.
