After premiering Knight of Cups recently at Berlin Film Festival, it’s likely not the only time we’ll see a new film from Terrence Malick this year. Shot back-to-back with his Christian Bale-led drama, he embarked on a music-themed feature set in Austin a few years ago. With a confirmed cast of at least Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender, Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchett, Malick recently finished production on the film and now we finally have its title.
Thanks to the resume of re-recording mixer and sound editor Joel Dougherty (via One Big Soul), the official title has been revealed to be Weightless. As we know, Malick originally had the title of Lawless before John Hillcoat snapped it up for his prohibition era crime drama, so this new “-less”-branded title isn’t too much of a surprise.
The story follows two intersecting love triangles exploring sexual obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas. Featuring music from Madonna, Bob Dylan, and Arcade Fire, the cast may also include Bale, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., Boyd Holbrook, Haley Bennett, Tom Sturridgem Berenice Marlohe and Holly Hunter, among likely many others.
Knight of Cups, Weightless, and Voyage of Time (which might come sooner than expected) will all be distributed by Broad Green, so check back for release dates as we get them.
