Malick Eyes Sir Gawain
Earlier this week we reported that Showtime was looking at a modern day retelling of the Camelot tale and now Ain’t it Cool News is reporting that director Terence Malick (The New World) is developing his own take on the legendary court of knights.
The Independent on March 23, 2002, first wrote about this, saying, "[Jim] Caviezel’s old friend Malick (also a Catholic) is apparently planning to make a film of the Middle English poem, Gawain and the Green Knight. Gawain is a proud and virtuous knight tempted three times by a beautiful lady, the Green Knight an emissary from God who ultimately exposes the chinks in his armor. Caviezel may well have talked himself out of a job by the time Malick gets round to casting, but he’d make a perfect Gawain. He’s so determined to be a saint, but what he always sounds is human."
