While actual plot details are unknown for Terrence Malick‘s Lawless and Knight of Cups, casting has been confirmed with stars like Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Ryan Gosling attached to one or the other. I’m still completely amazed at the fact that Malick is pumping out films this fast, with some big talent involved. It’s simply a dream come true for Malick fans such as myself.
Which makes this next piece of news from Deadline all the better. Oscar winner Natalie Portman will be joining both films, which marks her return to film after having her child. This is big news if you’re a fan of Malick or Portman. I really wish more was known about her particular roles or anyone’s roles for that matter. Malick is such a reclusive filmmaker and while it adds to the anticipation for his projects it really bugs me when he only releases a few images here and there.
I’d like to know more about his upcoming films, but at the same time I’m sure when the time is right he’ll start slowly leaking information to the world. It’s only a matter of time!
