If they were in your backyard, you should have gotten them into your films. Not in a manner of speaking, in a manner of like for real.

That's why he's a good fallback. You don't want a prudish fallback. Then it would be double the effort for half the reward.

Well, two Malicks: Tree of Life, and the one after that. Also Mann's next film somehow whynot. I think Marion Cotillard will be there too.

This doesn't belong in the thread, but...

Contagion

Matt Damon
Kate Winslet
Jude Law
Marion Cotillard
Gwyneth Paltrow
Laurence Fishburn

In a Stephen Soderbergh film

That is strangely reminiscent of Outbreak

Looks like Bob Berney is more or less confirming a Tree of Life release in November. And it still hopeful about the film making Cannes this year. :up:
