Terrence Malick has surprised movie nerds in the past couple months by deciding not to take decades between his movies, and instead he already has two films in development with a third one likely to be released next year. He also has the documentary The Voyage of Time in the works, and now it turns out there’s more Malick on the way. Malick’s longtime editor Billy Webber says that there will be a new home entertainment release of Badlands, which is welcome news considering there’s currently only a barebones DVD. Webber says, “Warner Bros. or Criterion is putting out a new version of ‘Badlands’ fairly soon,” and although he’s recorded a commentary track, he’s not sure if it will be used. Since Criterion has already picked up The Thin Red Line and Days of Heaven, it’s safe to assume they’ll get the disc (although part of that assumption comes from wishful thinking—the best kind of thinking).
