Doin’ it for the children of the revolution: Malick’s directing
another movie before these kids graduate from college.
Production is set for four months, starting in July–this July, 2004– for Terrence Malick’s next film, Che, starring Benecio Del Toro as the world’s most logo-friendly marxist. Malick’s writing and directing. Del Toro and Steven Soderbergh (I thought he was taking a year off?) will produce the $40 million picture, which comes–if you calculate by Malick-Time– almost 14 years ahead of schedule (i.e., six, not twenty years after his last movie, The Thin Red Line).
