TEXAS – Terrence Malick to remake We Bough a Zoo.
Visionary film maker Terrence Malick has revealed that his next project following Knight of Cups will be a remake of the Cameron Crowe classic We Bought a Zoo, starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson.
The news was revealed by Christian Bale, who finished shooting with Malick earlier this year. Speaking to Danish bacon magazine Swine, Bale said:
I was really disappointed working with Terry. Everyone said he was a deeply philosophical man and even a poet of sorts, but my experience was that he is absolutely obsessed by the career of Cameron Crowe. Knight of Cups is basically Almost Famous with some added Heidegger and as the film went on it became evident that he had lost interest and was already thinking about his next project.
What is your favourite time to eat bacon?
Breakfast. He was working on the script for We Bought a Zoo and constantly phoning Cameron Crowe for tips and hints about how to make the film. He wants to cast exactly the same people, Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson, and it will basically be a shot for shot remake but with an extensive voice over.
We Bought a Wonderful Zoo of Glory will be released in 2019.
