Terence Malick's Tree of Life was tentatively scheduled to come out this Christmas, but the decades-spanning epic from the director of Days of Heaven ('73) and The New World ('05) will be pushed back until next year, according to Anne Thompson at indieWIRE, echoing the sediments of Appartion studio head Bob Berney.
Tree of Life stars Brad Pitt and Sean Penn and appears to have that same kind of Days of Heaven-depression era wheat-field-and-overalls vibe to it. It's also reportedly supposed to have some scenes shot in the IMAX format tracing back to the evolution of dinosaurs (?). Whatever the hell it is, we'll have to wait for it until next year, it seems. Thompson speculates that the film will play at Cannes '10, which would make sense if it's ready.
