Malick's "Tree of Life" Continued

More information has emerged via PrairieMod regarding Terrence Malick's impending release, The Tree of Life (with Brad Pitt, Sean Penn and Jessica Chastain) and the director's next film (as yet untitled).  Beyond sharing a name with a certain iconic Wright window pattern, The Tree of Life has no direct allusions to - or inspirations from - Frank Lloyd Wright.  But, hold the phone:  Empire online reports that the forthcoming untitled film, staffing Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz and Javier Bardem (that's right, friend-o), might revolve around Wright's Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. 

"Oh Ben...I know we'll find your contact lens around here somewhere."

Now for a readers' poll:  

If Malick were to continue his flirtation with Wright and cast a contemporary actor as the famed architect in a film, who do you think should get the part?  Think long and hard, folks - most actors are too tall, and don't look good in a porkpie hat...
