    You get people who are perenially in movies year after year. Then you get people like Daniel Day-Lewis and Terrence Malick who are reclusive and only make a movie once every few years. Tarantino is also like this, but he’s not reclusive.

    I always wonder what the next project to bring them out of “temporary retirement” will be. Like what will be the film or TV show that will convince them to appear on screen again?

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see Daniel Day-Lewis tackle another powerful biopic. Somehow I always though DDL would be a perfect match for the Frank Zappa biopic. Or he could play some composer like Beethoven and win his fourth Best Actor award just because he is Daniel Day-Lewis.
    I am probably going to be laughed at here, but I always though DDL would be perfect to play Sideshow Bob if they ever make a live-action The Simpsons Movie

    The only DDL related news I heard for future projects was working with Scorsese again in Silence but there was the King lawsuit so I don’t know if that will happen. Also I heard he was to be on a NBC show but I cannot see him doing tv other then a movie. I wish he would do more work but it’s better he does less so often. I do not he looks like Frank Zappa but maybe Mark Rylance or John Hawkes could play him.

    I have never seen DDL as a recluse. He just waits for another good project to come along (or one that will win him an Oscar).

    I don’t mean recluse in the way that he locks himself up and avoids human contact. I’m talking more of the fact that he is a film recluse – being very, very picky

    A Daniel Day-Lewis show on NBC? That’s so interesting. I couldn’t see him doing TV – he would be great, but I don’t know if he’d be up to it though.

    Well, if he still is attached to Silence, Scorsese has claimed he plans on making it as his next feature. If Scorsese preps Silence for, say, a summer 2014 shoot-after Wolf of Wall Street and the awards ceremony, etc, do you think Daniel Day-Lewis will hop back on board? It takes him an average of 2-3 years before each project. He is a dedicated method actor and loves research.

    2007- There Wil Be Blood
    2009- Nine
    2012- Lincoln
    2015- Silence?

    Terrence Malick hasn’t been very reclusive (when it comes to making films) recently. And based on early word about To the Wonder, it is affecting the quality of his films.

    Another film recluse (i.e. someone who only make films every few years) that I would like to see work more is Todd Haynes, who’s Far From Heaven was a masterpiece.

    He only needs qbout a year for a role to prepare. That’s what he requested for “Lincoln.” 2-3 years would be ridiculous, even for DDL.

    Jessica Lange – Thérèse

    To those doubting either her, Elizabeth Olsen or this film in general… well, all I can say is:
