Cate Blanchett & Brad Pitt Will Be Narrating Malick's 'Voyage of Time'

Tree of Life

It's been nearly three years since we heard anything about Terrence Malick's Voyage of Time, an IMAX documentary spin-off from his existential Tree of Life. For awhile, we've known that Brad Pitt was going to narrate the film that focuses on life, death, the universe and all that good stuff in between. Now the film is being shopped around Cannes this month, so some more information on the project has surfaced. First of all, Screen Daily has word that the haunting voice of Cate Blanchett will also be narrating this wholly interesting and gestating project from Malick. In addition, there will also be two cuts of the film. Read on!

Variety has gotten word that there will be a 40-minute large format version of Voyage of Time, likely meant to be show at museums and whatnot, and also a feature length cut that will hit theaters sometime in 2016 (if all goes according to plan). Wild Bunch is behind the film, and executive Vincent Maraval calls it "Malick's legacy to humanity." The movie is said to be "a celebration of the earth, displaying the whole of time, from the birth of the universe to its final collapse.” That sounds an awful lot like the nature footage that ran through Tree of Life (een above). The film is being hyped up at the Cannes Film Market, so hopefully someone picks it up and it turns out to be something beautiful.

    He's my favorite director, someone who can tell a story with series of shots and little to no dialogue but keep you intrigued the entire time is nearly impossible... can't wait for this..

    The wait for this film is really "the voyage of time".
