Terrence Malick was born in Ottawa, Illinois and grew up in Oklahoma and Texas.
THE THIN RED LINE marks a much anticipated return to the director's chair for Malick, whose two previous pictures were Badlands and Days of Heaven. For the latter, Malick received the New York Film Critics Award, the National Society Of Film Critics Award and the Cannes Film Festival Award, all for Best Director.
Malick attended the Center for Advanced Film Studies at the American Film Institute, where he first met AFI founder and THE THIN RED LINE executive producer George Stevens Jr. and Phoenix Pictures chairman Mike Medavoy, who became his first agent.
Upon graduating from AFI, Malick made his first feature movie Badlands, followed in 1978 by Days of Heaven.
Malick currently lives in Austin, Texas.
