Haley Bennett just kind of… happened one day, so she’s now in a Terrence Malick film and gets cast in two promising features at once.

Adele Romanski will produce, while Benderspink does the same on that “executive” front; no start date has been made public.
Have you been keeping track of Bennett over the past few months? How does either project sound, taking her prior work into account?
