According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mumbai-based Percept Picture Co. said Tuesday that it will co-produce Tree of Life, which will be produced by Donald Rosenfeld. Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line) is in talks to direct and write the screenplay, and Colin Farrell is in talks to play one of the leads. Other cast members are being finalized. Emmanual Lubezki is the proposed director of photography.

The film's story outline has not yet been disclosed, but preproduction is slated to begin in January. Some parts of Life will be shot in India, for which Percept will handle ground production.
