Well, if the set pics so far are anything to go by, filming on Terrence Malick‘s “Knight of Cups” has been absolutely delightful. If there’s heavy drama to found in the picture, we haven’t seen it yet as Christian Bale has been happily frolicking with Wes Bentley and Natalie Portman in the snaps that have made it online. And now, a few more of Bale and Portman riding in a classic convertible with the wind in their hair have made their way to the interwebs.
While plot details are under wraps, if we were judge this based on the very limited images we’ve seen thus far, it seems Malick is making a video for the Beach Boys or something. Okay, we’re being silly, but all we can do at this point is speculate. However, there is one clue that does emerge from these pics. As you can see below, Bale is standing outside what looks to be the window of a palm reader or fortune teller. The title of the film refers to the tarot card that represents a contradiction, moodshift or a change of mode particularly as it pertains to love and relationships, and it seems it will have a part to play in the story.
Meanwhile, as if having four movies on the way (“Knight of Cups,” “Lawless (Or Whatever It Will Be Called),” “To the Wonder” and “The Voyage of Time“), Malick is also producing a new film as well, titled “Red Wing.” Naturally, there is no logline, but Will Wallace is set to direct. Who? He’s an actor who has appeared in “The Thin Red Line,” “The New World,” “The Tree of Life” and “To the Wonder.” He was also in David Gordon Green‘s “Undertow” (which Malick produced as well). And oh yeah, he’s Malick stepson as well. The project is currently out to writers, so perhaps we’ll find out more about it soon.
