You can see from some of the pictures that this film is being shot on the ALEXA camera. So Malick has gone digital.

The film he did with Olga Kurylenko was shot on the Red.

Yeah, but hardly any - it was still mostly good ol' 35mm.

Didn't know that. If any movie is an advertisement for 35mm, its Tree of Life.

I assume Malick is experimenting with different cameras to see what kind of images they produce. The Alexa is a lower resolution camera than 35mm or the Red, so I wonder why he's trying that camera out.

BTW, is it too late to finagle my way onto the crew of this movie? :ponder:

They were walking all over the place.  There's so much annoying Youtube footage of people spotting Bale and freaking out... then you'd see Malick was shooting the freak-outs too.

Interesting.  I'll bet we never see the footage.

I find it hilarious that Bale is so calm and easygoing since this seems to be quite a chaotic and on-the-fly shoot. Given the media's representation of him I wouldn't have thought he'd go for something like that. Whatever this is for, I'm looking forward to seeing the end result.

Anyone else think Bale looks like a 90s Tom Cruise in this?

bale did a herzog movie; he's down for stuff.

Exactly. That's almost as bad as having to hit a link to another website. Who has the time for that?

It's so weird that whenever I see this thread under "unread posts" I roll my eyes and think "Another one?"

WAIT. WAIT WAIT WAIT.

At the ever accelerating rate these movies keep coming, Malick seems to be spiraling towards some zero-point. They're so close now, these two even stick together, with Bale and Blanchett. Maybe he's heading towards a never-ending movie, that circle in the middle.

Official Logline For Terrence Malick's 'Lawless' Reveals Tale Of "Sexual Obsession And Betrayal"
Source: Playlist

It looks like a layer from Terrence Malick's otherwise mysterious "Lawless" has been peeled back. The film, one of two the director will shoot this year, has been working under a veil of secrecy thus far, but it looks like that pre-production work last fall at the Austin City Limits music festival was a good practice round for the upcoming film. And a new logline for the film reveals another interesting thematic turn for the helmer.

Production company FilmNation has a logline for the film that describes the plot as following "two intersecting love triangles. It is a story of sexual obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas." And well, that's all we have for now, but it's the biggest detail yet about the film that is set to star a great cast including Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Haley Bennett. And Malick fans might want to snap up some passes for this year's Austin City Limits fest, as we're guessing the director will be back.

Before the end of last year, Mara revealed that the film wouldn't be shooting until September ("Knight Of Cups" is slated to shoot first this summer). Given that we now know the film will be playing out against the backdrop of the music scene in Austin, we wouldn't be surprised if the production schedules add some additional time to hit the festival again when it runs from October 12-14.

Either way, it's an interesting revelation about the film which finds Malick moving yet again in another bold new direction. The official word on "Knight Of Cups" is that it will be a "separate narrative" from "Lawless" but given the casting crossover between both films (Bale, Blancett and Portman feature in both films, which seems like at least one love triangle), we wonder...
