Michael O’Brien’s “Father Elijah”: A Malick Movie?

News that Brad Pitt is “in talks” to take Heath Ledger’s place in Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life spread quickly this morning. But the real news from Planet Malick was yet to arrive…

Thanks to Steven D. Greydanus for alerting me to the most bizarre movie news of the week!

Michael O’Brien’s novel Father Elijah… to become a feature film?!

Produced by… Ecky Malick, Terrence Malick’s wife?!

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has relaunched a bigger, better version of this blog at LookingCloser.org. The new Looking Closer doesn't have any of the trashy click-bait advertisements that you're probably seeing all over this Patheos page. So give yourself a break.

    Excellent novel, but I would think a difficult adaptation. But if done well could easily be the best apocalypse film – though that is a genre easy to surpass.
