Knight Of Cups Hanan Townshend

Terrence Malick has let many collaborators into his secretive, creative lair but only a select few have become regulars. But it looks like Hanan Townshend will join folks like production designer Jack Fisk, editor Billy Weber and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki as one of the lucky few.

The composer has reunited with the filmmaker to score the director's upcoming "Knight of Cups," his second straight gig with Malick after composing the score for "To the Wonder." Of course, little is actually known of the plot, but it will feature in varying capacities (depending on who gets cut or not): Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Isabel Lucas, Antonio Banderas, Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Ryan O'Neal, Jason Clarke, Joel Kinnaman and Shea Whigham.

But that's not all Townshend is working on. He's also been hired to contribute additional music to the Malick-produced "The Green Glade Rises," which is now being called "The Better Angels." Starring Wes Bentley, Brit Marling, Diane Kruger and Jason Clarke, and directed by Malick protégé and collaborator A.J. Edwards, this one will tell the story of the childhood years of Abraham Lincoln. Really. Zbigniew Preisner ("The Three Colors" trilogy, "The Double Life of Veronique") is handling the main scoring duties

So, will we finally see both these movies in 2014? As always with Malick, who knows. [Film Music Reporter]
