Known Trivia

  • Christian Bale was cast but dropped out. Ben Affleck replaced him.
  • With this film coming out in 2012 and _Tree of Life (2011)_ being released in 2011, this will be the shortest time gap between movies for director Terrence Malick, the gap being only a year. Malick is famous for waiting years between projects. His shortest time gap between films previously was five years, between Badlands and Days of Heaven. His longest was 20 years, between Days of Heaven and The Thin Red Line.
  • Multiple sources, including The Los Angeles Times, reported that the film was shot under the title “The Burial” after a listing for the film was discovered under that name on a French film database website. However, producer Sarah Green stated, “It is not called ‘The Burial’. We don’t know what ‘The Burial’ is. Somebody else attached that name, but there is no movie that we’re working on called ‘The Burial.'”
  • Rachel Weisz, Jessica Chastain, Michael Sheen, Amanda Peet and Barry Pepper had supporting roles in the film which ended up being cut.
