Bale takes on two Malick movies
Christian Bale will be starring in two of Terrence Malick's upcoming films, it has been announced.
The Batman star, who was recently spotted at the Austin City Limits music festival with the filmmaker, will take the lead in Lawless and Knight Of Cups, both of which will be shot back-to-back in 2012.
He will be joined by Cate Blanchett, who will also appear in both movies, which are currently in pre-production stages.
Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Haley Bennett will star in Lawless, while Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen actress Isabel Lucas will join Christian and Cate on Knight Of Cups.
Glen Basner, CEO of FilmNation Entertainment said: "Terrence is a brilliant filmmaker and an enormous draw for talent and filmmakers alike."
Terrence, whose latest film The Tree Of Life was his first in five years, is also shooting another film, going by the title The Burial with Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen.
