Natalie Portman Joins Terrence Malick’s KNIGHT OF CUPS and LAWLESS

     February 8, 2012

Natalie Portman has set her first two films since giving birth to her son back in June, and both movies will be with Terrence Malick.  According to Deadline, Portman will co-star in Knight of Cups and Lawless, which are shooting back-to-back.  She joins Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett in starring in both movies (although as far as we know, the films don’t share a plot or characters).  Knights of Cups also stars Isabel Lucas, and Lawless‘ cast includes Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, and Haley BennettKnight of Cups shoots this summer and then Lawless will follow in the fall.

Hit the jump for more.

While Deadline reports that Lawless shoots in the fall, set photos have leaked out (or at the very least, actor and director research) from Austin City Limits and Fun Fun Fest (which is also in Austin).  Since Lawless and Knight of Cups (which Deadline is calling Knight of the Cups) are Terrence Malick movies, the plots are being kept under tight wraps.

Being Terrence Malick movies, the plots of both films are being kept under wraps, and we don’t know how long Malick will stay in the editing room with these movies.  There’s currently no release date for Malick’s untitled film starring Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams, which wrapped filming last year.  As you can see from the casts, there’s no dearth of acting talent for the celebrated director, who received his second Oscar nomination for Best Director earlier this year for The Tree of Life.
