Terrence Malick directing Ryan Gosling-led 'Lawless'

Posted on

There are so many stars in that headline, my computer itself is nearly lighting up. But talk about power players: FilmNation announced today that it will partner with The Tree of Life director Terrence Malick on two(!) new projects. The first, Lawless, will feature Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, and Rooney Mara. The second, Knight of Cups, reunites Malick and Bale (who starred in the filmmaker’s 2005 film The New World), and also stars Blanchett and Isabel Lucas.

Of course, both films are shrouded in mystery — don’t expect any plot descriptions anytime soon. (Some are still waiting for the plot description for Tree of Life.) FilmNation also has sales for the director’s next untitled film, headlined by Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams. The flurry of activity marks a strikingly prolific period for Malick, who prior to this year’s Tree of Life, had made only four films over 32 years.
