The Terrence Malick flick formerly known as Weightless (aka Wait List) is now being called Song to Song — terrific. Broad Green Pictures has announced a 3.7.17 release, or roughly two months hence. And they don’t have a trailer to show, much less a one-sheet?

Boilerplate: “In this modern love story set against the Austin music scene, two entangled couples — struggling songwriters Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling), and music mogul Cook (Michael Fassbender) and the waitress whom he ensnares (Natalie Portman) — chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.”

You never know which actors will make the final cut in a Malick film, but Song to Song‘s Wiki page lists the following cast members apart from Gosling, Mara, Fassbender and Portman: Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Haley Bennett, Val Kilmer, Benicio del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., Angela Bettis, Holly Hunter.

Principal photography began on this Austin-based musical drama in September 2012, or four years and three months ago — two months before Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney for the Presidency.

When Song to Song finally opens in February, over five and 1/3 years will have transpired between the earliest filming at the September 2011 Austin City Limits Music Festival.

This will make Song to Song a kind of milestone — the first ostensibly commercial film in history to shoot with major stars and not open until they’ve all noticably aged and basically turned into slightly different people.
