Michael Fassbender Uncertain He'll Make The Cut In Terrence Malick's Austin Movie, William Friedkin Disses 'To The Wonder'

While fans have been excited about this sudden flurry of activity, 2013 has been a bit of a bumpy year for the always under-the-radar Terrence Malick. His latest "To The Wonder" found him getting the rockiest reviews of his career, while he's in the midst of a lawsuit with producers over his brewing documentary "Voyage Of Time." But, that being said, he's got two more movies cooking, "Knight Of Cups" and the still untitled Austin music scene set picture. And now, a minor update has arrived, but the short answer? He's still working on it, of course.

While fans have been excited about his sudden flurry of activity, 2013 has been a bit of a bumpy year for the always under-the-radar Terrence Malick. His latest "To The Wonder" found him getting the rockiest reviews of his career, while he's in the midst of a lawsuit with producers over his brewing documentary "Voyage Of Time." But, that being said, he's got two more movies cooking, "Knight Of Cups" and the still untitled Austin music scene set picture. And now, a minor update has arrived, but the short answer? He's still working on it, of course.

Michael Fassbender recently talked with GQ as he continues his press run for "12 Years A Slave," and when asked about the Malick flick, he revealed that he's not certain he'll be in the movie. "I'm not sure," the actor said when asked if he was in the final cut or not. "I've got to go actually and do some more voice-over," adding, "just like reams and reams of that." 

And as any Malick fan knows, the writer/director loves voiceover, but he's also cut happy too, so who knows how much of that material or Fassbender's performance will be left. And with a cast that includes Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Haley Bennett, no shortage of musical cameos, and other pop-ins too by various faces, there is all sorts of opportunity for the focus and shape to change. (Just ask Adrien Brody).

Meanwhile, this video has been passing around The Playlist office, and we're not quite sure where it originated, but it's priceless nonetheless. It's William Friedkin doing a Q&A earlier this year, and throwing a bit of jab at "To The Wonder," and the tree-loving camera work. Watch below.
