First Look: Diane Kruger & Jason Clarke In Terrence Malick-Produced, Black-And-White Lincoln Biopic 'The Better Angels'

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. EdwardsJason Clarke, Diane Kruger, Brit Marling and Wes Bentley star in this evidently black-and-white film about the early years of Abraham Lincoln, with Kruger and Clarke as his parents. The official synopsis: 

Set in the harsh wilderness of Indiana, this is the story of Abraham Lincoln’s youth. It tells of the hardships that shaped him, the tragedy that marked him forever, and the two women who guided him to immortality. 

Hanan Townshend (“To The Wonder”) is scoring the film, and yeah, we’re definitely curious…
