Her role was cut along with that of Michael Sheen, Amanda Peet and Barry Pepper.
Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz's
role has been edited out of To The Wonder by visionary
director Terrence Malick.
The famously reclusive director is famed for leaving some
of the biggest names in Hollywood on the cutting room floor,
the Daily Mail reported.
Weisz accepted a role in the film for the chance to work
with Malick, who has directed films like Badlands, The Thin
Red Line and the Tree of Life.
"I had the experience of working with him (Malick), but I
will not have the pleasure of seeing my work," Weisz told
Italian newspaper La Stampa.
The 42-year-old star said that when she took on a role in
the film, she did so not knowing if it would be "...for four
or five days or three months. In the end I was there just for
a few days."
The film stars Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams and Javier
Bardem. The star's role was cut along with that of Michael
Sheen, Amanda Peet and Barry Pepper.
The other actors edited out from Malick's movies include
Adrian Brody, Michey Rourke, Gary Oldman, Billy Bob Thornton
and Martin Sheen.
Brody was furious when his scenes from The Thin Red
Line were left on the cutting room floor.
"You spend all this time in an unfamiliar place, you
experience incredible things, and then you come home, you're
wounded psychologically and you have nothing to show for it,"
he had said.
Penn was equally angry when he failed to appear in the
finished version of 2005's The New World.
"I'm still trying to figure out what I'm doing there and
what I was supposed to add in that context. What's more, Terry
never managed to explain it to me clearly," he had said.
