Terrence Malick’s new movies continue to get curiorser and curiorser. Notoriously secretive, it was a miracle Malick allowed anyone to release cast lists and titles at all for his two upcoming back-to-back features, “Lawless” and “Knight of Cups”, which is now filming in LA. From the sole press release, we know Christian Bale, Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchett would be part of both films, and that Haley Bennett, Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara would join them for the former, while Aussie actress Isabel Lucas is part of the latter.
Well, now new photos from the set of “Knight of Cups” seem to reveal a new cast member that had been kept under wraps for whatever reason, and it’s British rising star Imogen Poots, here sporting punk-rock black hair with yellow streaks and an all black ensemble – something we’ve noticed is a bit of a trend on this pair of movies. Bale and Poots look decidedly less romantic in these shots than he has previously with Portman and Bennett, so it’s unclear what the relationship is here, though we do know he plays a man on a search for “love and truth.” Gee, can they vague that up for us? Similarly, “Lawless” is about love as well, two intersecting love triangles to be precise. And while they share much of the same cast and set photos from both films seem way too similar to be coincidental, it’s (tentatively) believed the two films are stand-alones.
