I never thought I would say “It’s been difficult to keep up with Terrence Malick‘s numerous projects,” but here we are. The director used to take years between putting movies into development, but now in addition to the Ben Affleck/Rachel McAdams romance film Into the Wonder hopefully hitting theaters this year, he’s currently at work on two more films: Lawless and Knight of Cups. Christian Bale and Natalie Portman co-star in both movies, and today we have new set photos of the duo from either Lawless or Knight of Cups, but we don’t know which one. The images show Bale and Portman goofing around on the shores of Malibu, but we don’t know if these are test shots of something that will be in whatever movie they’re shooting.
Details about Knight of Cups are being kept under wraps, but we know Lawless is about “Two intersecting love triangles,” and “It is a story of sexual obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas.” Knight of Cups also stars Isabel Lucas, and Lawless also stars Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, and Haley Bennett. Cate Blanchett co-stars in both films. Hit the jump to check out the images. [Update: We’ve removed the unofficial images.]
