Just like with “Knight of Cups” before it, set photos are the method through which we are gathering scraps of info on elusive director Terrence Malick’s next untitled feature. The film formerly titled “Lawless” is now filming in Austin, Texas, and today we have our glimpse of two unannounced cast additions cozying up to Natalie Portman. Set against the backdrop of the music scene in Texas, the film is loosely described as being about two intersecting love triangles.
Michael Fassbender is seen holding Portman in his arms, while rising star Boyd Holbrook looks much more restrained, though there are subtle hints of intimacy between the two during their scene as well. Is this one of the intersecting love triangles the film is purported to be about in action right before our eyes? Of course, this adds more questions to how the cozy duos of Christian Bale and Haley Bennett and Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara fit into Portman’s seemingly already complicated love life. Gosling and Mara have been pictured filming in Austin in recent weeks as well, and Gosling and Fassbender apparently had at least one brief scene together, but thus far, that’s been the only “intersecting” we’ve seen take place.
With “To the Wonder” and “Knight of Cups” on the docket for release before this film, it may be a long while before we get any answers. For now, some new set photos of Portman, Gosling, Holbrook and Fassbender can be seen below, and Just Jared has even more.
