'Lawless' Star Jason Clarke The Latest Name Added To Terrence Malick's 'Knights Of Cups'

Seen everywhere from Paul Oakenfold's DJ decks to frolicking on the beachfront with Christian Bale and beautiful actresses in tow, director Terrence Malick has seemingly conjured up non-stop momentum with his latest, “Knight of Cups,” never hinting where or who it will land next. So it went earlier this week with “Snabba Cash” actor Joel Kinnaman finding a part in the film, and now with the Weinsteins' latest release, “Lawless,” coming to theatres soon, an actor from that film has revealed his involvement in the sprawling production.

Seen everywhere from Paul Oakenfold's DJ decks to frolicking on the beachfront with Christian Bale and beautiful actresses in tow, director Terrence Malick has seemingly conjured up non-stop momentum with his latest, “Knight of Cups,” never hinting where or who it will land next. So it went earlier this week with “Snabba Cash” actor Joel Kinnaman finding a part in the film, and now with the Weinsteins' latest release, “Lawless,” coming to theatres soon, an actor from that film has revealed his involvement in the sprawling production.

Turning in a fantastic performance in John Hillcoat's “Lawless,” actor Jason Clarke has yet again shown why a dream-team of directors, including Kathryn Bigelow, Michael Mann, and Baz Luhrmann, have used him before. While out promoting Hillcoat's film, when asked of other projects he's been working on, he mentioned spending some time recently with Malick on “Knight of Cups.” In discussing his experience and Malick's intense work ethic, Clarke said, “It was great. Terry's out on his own journey, as a filmmaker, with where he wants to go. You can't dismiss Terry. He has deep, deep thought and emotion behind what he's doing. It's not, like, willy-nilly. It's very complex and, yet, very simple at the same time.”

Without dropping any hints as to his role or the film's plot, Clarke also confirmed Malick's complete willingness to experiment with scenes and the structure of his narrative. “He's also got the balls to let something run. He knows a piece of work or art or anything creative is going to have its own breathing apparatus; it's going to walk its own way, if you let it. It could possibly be scary, but it can also be amazing.”

Clarke's word sounds familiar to the slowly increasing gallery of actors who've gone through Malick's process only to be confused where they end up, but with Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Isabel Lucas, Antonio Banderas, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer and Ryan O'Neal, the prospect of these actors exploring new ground sounds incredible, even if details of the narrative around them remain scarce thus far.
