How do you top winning an Oscar and having a baby? How about two consecutive Terrence Malick films?

Knight of the Cups starring Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett shoots this summer while Lawless with Bale, Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara will follow in the fall.

I can’t remember how much info has made the rounds about either film, but whatever it is I can’t pass it along because I don’t want to know.

  1. Terrence Malick films women in a most romantic and beautiful way. I still remember the scenes with Miranda Otto in THE THIN RED LINE. I love Natalie Portman’s face and i can only imagine the poetry and beauty that will come out of Malick’s direction.

  2. To say I’m eagerly anticipating these films is a massive understatement.

  3. Two back-to-back Malick films. Who ever thought that could happen? I’m interested in seeing whether Malick goes into new stylistic and thematic territory after ToL so powerfully expressed his body of work.

  4. I’m curious to see what happens as he works at a quicker pace. It’s possible both films could be tied up in post production for ages and ages, but I like the idea that he’s being more prolific.

  5. Maybe Malick is done contemplating his navel and has work that needs to get done. In any event, it’ll be a treat.

  6. Somehow I imagine he’ll still work in plenty of navel gazing, he’ll just be doing it at a faster pace.
