While it may not bear a Directed By credit, the upcoming "Green Blade Rises" seems to be putting together a lot of ingredients familiar to producer Terrence Malick. The project will be directed by A.J. Edwards, a protegé of the filmmaker who was an editor on "To The Wonder" and served various roles on "The New World" and "The Tree Of Life." Moreover, it features Wes Bentley and Jason Clarke (along with Diane Kruger and Brit Marling), who both appear (or at least shave shot scenes) for Malick's "Knight Of Cups." And now a composer who will be familiar to Malick fans has come aboard.

While it may not bear a Directed By credit, the upcoming "Green Blade Rises" seems to be putting together a lot of ingredients familiar to producer Terrence Malick. The project will be directed by A.J. Edwards, a protegé of the filmmaker who was an editor on "To The Wonder" and served various roles on "The New World" and "The Tree Of Life." Moreover, it features Wes Bentley and Jason Clarke (along with Diane Kruger and Brit Marling), who both appear (or at least shave shot scenes) for Malick's "Knight Of Cups." And now a composer who will be familiar to Malick fans has come aboard.

Zbigniew Preisner has signed on to score "Green Blade Rises" -- so, who is he? Well, film buffs should know he was a frequent collaborator with Krzysztof Kieslowski, penning the music for "The Three Colors" trilogy and "The Double Life Of Veronique," among others. While Malick-heads will remember that Preisner's "Lacrimosa" was one of the key tracks featured in "The Tree Of Life." Either way, we love his work and will be very curious to see what he brings to the table in the film that will chronicle Abe Lincoln's youth, and focus on the two women who put him on the path to becoming one of the nation's greatest presidents.

Production will begin on the film soon, and of all the things Edwards may have learned from Malick, here's hoping that taking two years to complete a movie isn't one of them. [Film Music Reporter]
