While “Knight Of Cups” and “Untitled Music Scene Movie That Probably Won’t Have Christian Bale In It Anymore” are still out in the wild, waiting to be completed, for those aching for some more Terrence Malick, this is one affiliated project that will get your 2014 off to a happy start.
The reclusive director is producing “The Better Angels,” the directorial debut of his protégé and collaborator A.J. Edwards.
