When it was said that director Terrence Malick was actually going to start making movies at a respectable pace most people thought he was just telling us what we wanted to hear. The talented director has only made 5 films since 1973. Rumors have been swarming about his first untitled project that is apparently already in post-production. All that we know about that one is that it stars Ben Affleck, Rachel Weisz, Jessica Chastain and Rachel McAdams.
Then rumors about Malick working with Christian Bale on yet another untitled project came up. Most thought this wouldn’t start filming until next year, since Malick is busy with his first untitled project and Bale is focused on The Dark Knight Rises, but both were spotted at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. This makes sense because Malick lives in the area and his projects are always so damn secretive.
It also should be noted that a proper photo of Mr. Malick hasn’t been taken in a very long time, since he signed several contracts ages ago that involved not doing press junkets of any kind. Malick is a very private person and it kind of sucks because the man is a very talented artist and I’m sure a lot of people would love to get inside his head and hear his thoughts on these bold projects.
Christian Bale is one of the best working in Hollywood right now and just hearing about him working with Malick brings lots of joy and excitement. I really hope we find out some more details on this project, but for now we’ll just have to deal with all of the mystery.
