'Tree of Life' will not screen at Toronto

Terrence Malick film stars Sean Penn and Brad Pitt

TORONTO -- First Cannes, then Venice and now Toronto.

Terrence Malick's upcoming "Tree of Life" from Apparition won't see Sean Penn and Brad Pitt walking the red carpet into Roy Thomson Hall to launch the indie pic.

Toronto International Film Festival co-director Cameron Bailey told the Toronto Star on the weekend that Malick's 1950s coming-of-age drama won't be ready in time for Toronto.

"It would be a lovely surprise, but we're not holding our breath. We know he's definitely still working on the film, and he's tired of being pushed by people. We've backed off and Venice has backed off," Bailey said.
