Isabel news is slow again, so while I was checking for any news on Knight Of Cups I came across some interviews with a couple of the cast members plus a film editor who previously worked with director Terrence Malick which I thought I’d post here. They give a bit of insight into what the film might be about. As for a release date for the film, it will probably be 2014 now.
Jason Clarke interview with IndieWire:
And what was “Knight of Cups” like?
It was just hilarious! Well Terry is a guy where you get 20 pages of dialogue, this extraordinarily in-depth dialogue, and then you’ll learn it and try and shoot it. But Terry’s not after anything that’s ordained or set up. He’s creating an environment where he just wants to capture something that’s alive.
Are you in it enough that you can’t be cut out of it?
You never know with Terrence Malick. I remember when I told Jess, she said, “Just so you know, you might not end up in the film.” There were so many people coming in and out and he’s out there doing his thing. There’s a craziness and a wonderfulness and a freedom but he’s got great motives and aspirations. He’s interested in pursuing things.
Teresa Palmer interview with IndieWire
Last week, we had the pleasure of chatting with Palmer about ‘Wish’ but of course, had to inquire about her work on Malick’s film. And what started as a schedule that wasn’t supposed to last longer than a day, turned into something much more, with Palmer being utilized to shake up the story and characters in the film.
“I was only supposed to be there for one morning and…they call it ‘torpedo’ when a character in a cast comes and gets thrown into the scene and the other actor doesn’t know that character is going to be put in the scene. That’s just the little experiment they do,” Palmer explained. “So the end of when I was supposed to go home, Terence asked me, ‘What are you doing the rest of the day?’ I was like ‘Nothing, nothing at all.’ And then he was like, ‘Would you like to stay and we’ll make you a torpedo.’ So I ended up torpedoing into these scenes with Christian Bale and then that continued on for the next eight days. So I was brought back and this character became a bigger character and I got to improvise and it was just a funny, sassy character that’s different from a lot of the other characters that I’ve seen in some of Terry’s past films.”
