Bale, Blanchett double down on Malick projects
Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett are both set to star in two upcoming Terence Malick films, both of which will be launched to buyers at the American Film Market being held this week in Santa Monica, Variety's Diana Lodderhose was first to report. The first, LAWLESS, will topline Ryan Gosling, Bale, Blanchett, Rooney Mara and, as Variety first reported, Haley Bennett (MARLEY & ME). Malick’s second pic, KNIGHT OF CUPS, will star Bale, Blanchett and Isabel Lucas (IMMORTALS, TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN.) Both pics are currently in pre-production and will shoot back-to-back in 2012. Details of the two plots are being kept under wraps but both titles will be separate narratives.
