    Terrence Malick has become very prolific in recent years with films coming out about every two to three years, whereas in the past, he once went 20 years without releasing a film. Apart from his two upcoming films Voyage Of Time and Weightless, he is soon beginning production on a new film, Radegund.

    Radegund tells the story of Franz Jagerstatter, an Austrian who was the only opponent of the Nazis in his village, and refused to fight for them when World War II erupted. For his refusal, he was arrested and executed. The film’s title comes from the village where Jagerstatter was born. Jagerstatter, a devout Catholic, was posthumously declared a martyr and beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in 2007, which for all you non-Catholics out there, means he is one step closer to sainthood.

    Portraying Franz Jagerstatter will be German actor August Diehl, who had a small role in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and also starred in The Counterfeiters, the 2007 Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film. Filming is set to begin soon and no release date has been set yet, but as a big Terrence Malick fan, a historian, and a Catholic, I’m really looking forward to this!!

    Wow! I really love Diehl’s work, very nice to watch him with the great Malick, sounds like his more ‘normal’ plot since his return with The Tree of Life. Wondering if it will be in English or German.

    My guess is it will probably be a mix of both.

    I dunno……

    On the one hand, I’m a big Malick fan and a huge history buff. But on the other, I’d rather open up a vein than subject myself to the subject matter of this film.

    Hasn’t generally stopped me before, however.

    Why would you rather open up a vein than watch this film, whenever it comes out?

    This: For his refusal, he was arrested and executed.
    and this: Nazis

    I think the whole point of the film will be to show that Franz Jagerstatter’s defiance of the Nazis was a tremendous act of courage.

    More casting has been revealed. Valerie Pachner will play Franz Jagerstatter’s wife Franziska, and Michael Nyqvist, Matthias Schoenaerts and Bruno Ganz will all have significant supporting roles.

    The first official photo from Radegund has been released, and the film is now aiming for a 2017 release. Exact date is still to be determined. http://www.indiewire.com/2017/02/radegund-first-look-terrence-malik-world-war-ii-drama-1201781621/

    So there are 2 films from Terrence Malick. “Song to Song”, starring Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett and Christian Bale (wow, what a cast!), it looks like it might have a great shot at Cinematography nod, even though it’s a March release.

    Terence Malicks last two features have been terrible especially Knight of Cups

    Song to Song looks more of the same,but I think he’ll really knock it out of the Park in Radegund

    I am sure that films shot by Terrence Malick in 2012 and 2016 are going to be released the same year.
