Earlier today we were just writing about "The Green Blade Rises," one of a whole host of projects Terrence Malick has in the pipeline. Of course, he's just producing this film, which tells the story of a young Abraham Lincoln and his hardscrabble upbringing, with writing and directing duties handled by his protégé and collaborator A.J. Edwards. It was already announced that Sarah Lincoln, Abe's stepmother, would be played by Diane Kruger, but she'll be joined by Jason Clarke, who is in final negotiations to play Tom Lincoln, Abe's father.

Terrence Malick doesn't stop. With the director currently at work on four different movies in various stages of production -- "To The Wonder," "The Voyage of Time," "Knight of Cups" and the movie formerly known as "Lawless" -- he's also throwing his enigmatic weight around as a producer. Last month it surfaced that he was behind "Red Wing," which is searching for a writer, and would serve as the directorial debut of Will Wallace, his stepson, who has appeared in numerous Malick-related projects including "The Thin Red Line," "The New World" and "Undertow." Well, another Malick venture is gearing up, and it will roll this fall. And as usual, it's a complete fucking mystery, though there are some details.
