If there was any doubt, Terrence Malick is definitely in production on his next feature, despite no word yet on when we’ll see his completed Ben Affleck-starring drama To the Wonder. We got a glimpse of Natalie Portman and Christian Bale on the set of Knight of Cups last week and now a new actress has emerged from the woodwork.
Cate Blanchett has been spotted on set, in complete scrubs. Although we have no inkling of plot details, this does give an indication of some hospital location in the film that also is said to star Isabel Lucas, but she has yet to be spotted. Malick’s other film, previous titled Lawless, also stars Portman, Bale and Blanchett, as well as Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Haley Bennett.

While the female cast, including Olivia Wilde, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Samantha Morton, has yet to spotted on the untitled film, we’ve got a look at Adams’ The Master co-star Joaquin Phoenix on set. Sporting a moustache, all we really know about this one is that he plays a man who falls in love with the voice of a Siri-esque computer. Check out the photos below from The Daily Mail and JustJared/Zimbio (via The Playlist) for two features we can’t wait to see.

What dictated these labels […]
Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. If we were provided screener copies, we’ll have our own write-up, but if that’s not the case, one can find official descriptions from the distributors. Check out […]
Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
