Dinosaurs Shaking Up Malick’s The Tree of Life

Dino's shaking up The Tree of LifeI love me some dinosaurs. Something about these giant creatures has always captured my imagination. They must have had the same effect on director Terrence Malick because it looks as if his new project, The Tree of Life, will be featuring some of these toothy devils!

Ain’t it Cool delivered this tasty little slice of info. In an offline interview with Empire Online about the future of visual effects, Oscar-winning visual f/x supervisor Mike Fink stated, “We’re just starting work on a project for Terrence Malick, animating dinosaurs. The film is The Tree of Life, starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn. It’ll be showing in IMAX – so the dinosaurs will actually be life size – and the shots of the creatures will be long and lingering.”

Spicoli and life-sized dinosaurs?!? I think I just peed a little. Keep it right here for more as we get it!

    This makes sense. A lot of Malick’s movies move like a brontosaurus.

    How about a shot-for-shot remake of Malick’s THIN RED LINE with a T-Rex instead of Nick Nolte?

    Cripes, the story sounds like a complete mess. I say scrap the dinosaurs and set a minotaur loose on a WWI battlefront.

    Although I would pay double ticket price to see Sean Penn get eaten by a dinosaur and give a hefty tip to the theater usher if it was slow and he screamed a lot.
