Terrence Malick Two New Films – ‘Lawless’ and ‘Knight of Cups,’ Both With Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett
We were lucky to get one Terrence Malick film, now there is word he is taking on two new projects, talk about an abundance of riches. From his first film in 1973, he has only released five films to this day. According to Variety, Malick will shoot his next two projects back to back.
The first film, “Lawless,” will topline Ryan Gosling, Bale, Blanchett, Rooney Mara and Haley Bennett (“Marley and Me”).
FilmNation Entertainment is continuing their relationship with acclaimed director Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life, The Thin Red Line) and handling international sales and distribution on his next two films. LAWLESS will star Ryan Gosling (Drive, The Ides of March) and boasts a supporting cast that includes Academy Award Winners Christian Bale (The Dark Knight, The Flowers of War), Cate Blanchett (The Hobbit, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) plus Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network) and Haley Bennett (Marley & Me, The Haunting of Molly Hartley).
While the second film, “Knight of Cups,” will star Bale, Blanchett and Isabel Lucas (“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen“).
The second film, KNIGHT OF CUPS, will star Christian Bale with a supporting cast including Cate Blanchett and Isabel Lucas (Immortals, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen). Both films are currently in pre-production and will shoot back-to-back in 2012. Sarah Green (Untitled Terrence Malick Project, The Tree of Life, The New World, Take Shelter, Mud) and Nicolas Gonda (Untitled Terrence Malick Project, The Tree of Life, The New World) will serve as the producers on both films with FilmNation Entertainment handling international sales during this week’s AFM.
For a guy known for being very selective over what he decides to direct, to having quite a few films on the market is a big leap in output. Hopefully, his standard for quality will remain. Those of you who don’t care for Malick’s painfully slow films might not find this news as interesting.
