Because, sure, the cast for Knight of Cups could stand to get a little bigger, it looks as though Imogen Poots (Fright Night, Jane Eyre) has also taken a role in Terrence Malick‘s next, next film. (Let’s not forget To the Wonder, folks.) How did we find out? In another installment of the “Christian Bale has a seemingly deep or profound moment an actress” series, one which kicked off earlier this week when he was seen filming with both Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman; what it all means is just another question.
Some get the impression that Bale and Poots‘ characters are having an argument over… something, though a resolution amongst the two is hinted at in both their affectionate glances and, particularly, the way in which he carries her in a few images. But those are all inferences rooted in half-guesses, anyway, the kind that probably won’t have any sort of answer until Knight of Cups hits in a few years.
On a minor, final note: Some have noticed that, in a video wherein TMZ act as the scumsuckers of this planet, Malick just so happened to be conversing with Benicio del Toro outside some establishment. The two have something of a history with one another — he was going to helm Che about ten years ago, before it collapsed and came back together with Steven Soderbergh — leading to suspicions that del Toro‘s in Knight of Cups. It might be (well, is) a little too tenuous for us to go and add his name to the cast list, but it creates a possibility nonetheless.
Watch the video but, for your own good, skip to 3:15 for the actual content:
What role do you think Poots will play in Knight of Cups? Could del Toro have a role himself?

I’m not sure I’d think much about diving into the work of Les Blank if only given a plot synopsis. His films, including a plethora now available in a stunningly thorough Criterion set, take on the esoteric sides of America, from bluegrass musicians to the wonders of polka to the taste of Creole cooking. These […]
