Zbigniew Preisner has been hired to score the upcoming drama The Green Blade Rises. The film marks the directorial debut of AJ Edwards who worked with Terrence Malick on his past three films and was the editor on his most recent feature To The Wonder. The Green Blade Rises starring Wes Bentley, Brit Marling, Diane Kruger and Jason Clarke follows Abraham Lincoln’s formative years, including abandonment by his father in the harsh winter wilderness, the tragedy that marked him forever and the two women who guided him to immortality, putting him on the path to becoming one of the most influential Presidents in United States history. Edwards also wrote the original screenplay and Terrence Malick is producing the film with Nicolas Gonda (The Tree Of Life) and Charley Beil (To The Wonder). The production marks Preisner’s first English language feature project in almost a decade. The Golden Globe-nominated Polish composer’s best known credits include the Three Colors films, The Double Life of Veronique and The Secret Garden. The Green Blade Rises is expected to be released in 2013.
