To be certain, we’re now in the thick of ‘To the Wonder’ in terms of Terrence Malick, but it’s hard to forget that he’s also got a bevy of projects being worked on. Clearly, this is his most productive period to date, though still with the trademark secrecy that he’s cultivated throughout his career. His next film is going to be ‘Knight of Cups’ and The Playlist has gotten the first new bit of information here about the work (plus a bit on the film that was to be called ‘Lawless’ and the documentary ‘Voyage of Time’). Apparently it stars Christian Bale and it’s going to be about the movie industry…but you can read more after the jump. Malick on movies? I’m interested, that’s for sure. The details on this and his other upcoming projects can be found below…
Here’s some of the highlights from the story, coming from Malick’s producer Sarah Green:
“We recently finished shooting ‘Knight of Cups,’ which is about the LA movie business. Our untitled film, the one set against the music scene in Texas, will begin shooting in a few weeks. It was called ‘Lawless’ but we agreed to give that name to John Hillcoat.” She then noted that, “Both films star Christian Bale and are set in the contemporary world. We’ll edit them simultaneously and FilmNation is on board both. We consider FilmNation partners on all of Terry’s films going forward.”
Green then cleared up where in the process is “Voyage of Time,” the documentary feature that spun off from the beginnings-of-the-universe stuff from ‘Tree of Life’ (last we heard Brad Pitt and Emma Thompson were on board to narrate). Well, that is a little further away. “There are large parts shot already but it’s a multi-year project so there’s a way to go yet,” Green said. “Terry has been envisioning it for several decades.”
