Rachel Weisz Won’t Be in To the Wonder After All

As is the case with all things Terrence Malick, the details surrounding To the Wonder, which will debut at Toronto next month, are hazy at best. (It stars Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams; it takes place in a field?) But Rachel Weisz can definitely confirm that she is not in the movie, though she filmed a few scenes: "I had the experience of working with him," she told an Italian newspaper, "but I will not have the pleasure of seeing my work." Also on the cutting room floor, if revised cast lists are to be believed: Michael Sheen, Amanda Peet, Barry Pepper, and the formerly ubiquitous Jessica Chastain. Is this just how Terrence Malick socializes? ("Come hang out on my set" is not the worst friend-making strategy, we guess.)
