Terrence Malick - Rachel Mcadams Doesn't Know What Upcoming Terrence Malick Film Is About

Reclusive director Terrence Malick is so secretive about his latest film project his leading lady Rachel Mcadams still has no idea what the movie is about.
The filmmaker is currently working on an as-yet-untitled love story with MCAdams, Ben Affleck and Javier Bardem, and he took The Notebook star on a mini-tour of a small town to give her a sense of where her character, Jane, would have spent her youth.
She tells Elle magazine, "It was great working with Terrence Malick recently. He took me around a town where my character would have lived and pointed out, 'Perhaps you grew up in that house, and your dad worked at that building, and you went to that school.' I found it incredibly helpful."
But MCAdams admits she is still unsure as to what exactly the story is about.
She says, "You don't know with Terry... All I can say is, it was a very satisfying, unique way of shooting. And (the film) will probably be very beautiful.
"It's probably not a romantic comedy but... I still can't be sure! You never know."
However, Malick's unusual approach to filmmaking appears to be paying off - his new movie The Tree of Life, starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, claimed the prestigious Palme d'Or prize at the Cannes Film Festival in France on Sunday (22May11).
