Rachel Weisz Says She’s Been Cut From Terrence Malick’s To The Wonder


By: Sean O’Connell

rachel_weisz_32697After a lengthy delay, Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder is about to make its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, followed by an anticipated Toronto bow. But one actress we thought we’d see in Malick’s finished film has landed on the cutting-room floor.

Rachel Weisz confirms to the Italian media outlet La Stampa (via The Film Stage) that the part she filmed for the drama “has been cut.”

“I had the experience of working with him [Malick] but I will not have the pleasure of seeing my work,” Weisz says.

This has become the norm for the eccentric filmmaker, who famously snipped such major talents as Martin Sheen, Gary Oldman and Mickey Rourke from his overstuffed ensemble for The Thin Red Line. Other actors such as John Travolta and George Clooney were reduced to mere cameos in the film. And Sean Penn’s part in Malick’s well-received Tree of Life was drastically edited … much to Penn’s own chagrin.

As far as we know, the final cut on Malick’s To the Wonder will feature Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem and Olga Kurylenko in a story about unrequited love in America’s heartland. But in typical Malick fashion, we know very little about the movie beyond the simple logline. We’re just intrigued by the cast, and have come to expect deep, contemplative things from Malick. We’ll see who survived the final cut when we’re able to see To the Wonder in Toronto, and cross our fingers for a theatrical release not long after that.
