I’m starting to think Terrence Malick may be beachside for the entirety of his next film(s). We already saw Christian Bale and Wes Bentley relax on the beach for one of Malick’s next back-to-back features, either Knight of Cups and/or the previously titled Lawless. Now we’ve got official confirmation that Natalie Portman is part of the production, as the first set photos of her and Bale have surfaced, seeing them return to the Malibu shores. This marks the Black Swan actress’ first production since she took a break to deliver her child. For Bale, it’s his first post-Batman role after The Dark Knight Rises, along with the currently shooting Out of the Furnace. There’s no telling if these are just test shoots or something that will actually make it into the film, but it’s nice to see things moving along.
