Norman Reedus,Walking Dead
John Hillcoat always nabs great casts. “Lawless” had Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, I’m Not Famous Anymore, and many others. And now Deadline reports that “Walking Dead” dirtbag Norman Reedus has joined the cast of his latest, the contemporary cop thriller “Triple Nine.” This spectacular cast already includes Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Woody Harrelson, Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, Kate Winslet and Gal Gadot. Damyo. Nick Cave will likely write the score again.

Joel Kinnaman
Just like the start of the past few years, we wonder if in the months ahead we'll see the latest from Terrence Malick, who is currently sitting on two films; an untitled Austin music scene set movie, and "Knight Of Cups." Will they screen at Cannes or perhaps be split up and hit a couple of different festivals? Your guess is as good as ours, though Malick's protege A.J. Edwards—the director behind the very Malick-y "The Better Angels," which the reclusive filmmaker put his name on as producer—seems to think they will indeed arrive sometime in 2014.

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.

And so 2013 draws to a close, and even though production started on two different, new Terrence Malick films back in 2011, there is still no sign of either "Knight Of Cups" or his Untitled Music Scene project. Both movies feature extensive, starry cast members who dropped by to work on the movie at various junctures, and both have plot details which are a mystery to everyone but Malick, but it looks like there is one major star you can likely count out of one of the projects.

NYFF: Cate Blanchett Talks The "Quasi-Religious Experience" Of Working With Terrence Malick, Woody Allen & More

Taking a "break" from shooting Kenneth Branagh's "Cinderella" in London, Cate Blanchett walked on the stage of Alice Tully Hall Wednesday night dripping in Hollywood glamor (immediately after an exclusive invite-only dinner in her honor) and sat down with NYFF programming director Kent Jones as part of the festival's Gala tribute to her career. As the discussion got underway, the stunning and humorously self-effacing Blanchett spoke about her experiences working with highly esteemed directors (Allen, Malick, Scorsese ...), her first paying acting gig (for five Egyptian pounds and free falafel—"I only have one anecdote and that was it") and her children's hopes that someday she will be in a blockbuster ("The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull"?).

As you know, there are approximately five thousand actors who have walked onto the set and in front of a camera for Terrence Malick's next effort "Knight Of Cups," a drama set against the backdrop of the movie industry, one of two features he's prepping along with a still untitled flick that takes place amongst the Austin music scene. And one of the talents that got to spend some time with Malick on 'Cups' was rising Australian actress Teresa Palmer, who was last seen onscreen in the zombie rom-com "Warm Bodies" and features in the upcoming thriller "Wish You Were Here." And like many who have collaborated with the press shy filmmaker, she wholeheartedly enjoyed the experience.

We were a bit depressed about the reception to "To The Wonder." When Terrence Malick's latest premiered in Venice last year, we found it beguiling and beautiful, and arguably superior to his previous picture "The Tree Of Life." But the critical consensus didn't agree with us, and the film picked up some harsh notices, and in the month since it was released, has made only $500,000 at the U.S. box office.

Terrence Malick’s Editor Billy Weber Says 'Knight of Cups' Won’t Be As Dialogue-Free & Experimental As 'To The Wonder'

Billy Weber, Terrence Malick
While at this year’s TCM Classic Film Festival, we had the chance to sit down with Billy Weber, Terrence Malick’s longtime editor. Beginning his editing career on the cult horror flick “Messiah of Evil,” Weber went on to work with directors ranging from Malick to Martin Scorsese (“Taxi Driver”) to Tony Scott (“Top Gun”). Meeting Malick as an editing assistant on “Badlands,” the two have become decades-long friends and worked together on four more films spanning over forty years -- “Days of Heaven,” “The Thin Red Line” and “The Tree of Life.” Being close to the enigmatic director, Weber gave us some insight on Malick’s upcoming projects, although Weber won’t be involved in either, and laid some rumors to rest. As we shared last week, Weber revealed that Malick is working on a director’s cut for "The Tree of Life.” Here are a few more things we gleaned from that conversation.

To The Wonder, Actors Cut From Malick Films
We’ve all been there. Cast as the lead in a meaty, dialogue-heavy role in a surefire masterpiece from one of the most unassailable geniuses of modern filmmaking, only to be reduced to sifting through the finished film on freeze frame occasionally shouting "Look! That’s my shadow on that fern!" or "Hey! That’s the back of my head near that egret!" The one comfort we can take when this inevitability occurs, is that we’re in fine company on the Malick cutting room floor. The only question is, whose lead will we follow in reacting to our role’s excision or drastic reduction?

Terrence Malick's 'Knight Of Cups' Gets New, Appropriately Vague Logline

It would seem that as Terrence Malick has increased his workflow, some of the goodwill he's had for decades has slightly eroded. The director's latest effort "To The Wonder" recently played both Venice and TIFF where it mostly received unenthusiastic notices, with many tiring of his let's-go-explore-the-wheatfields style. And it's not a surprise it's still without a U.S. distribution deal. As for us, our man in Venice dug the film and this writer saw it in Toronto and, though it's problematic, found much to digest in the movie that, to the viewer willing to look past the surface, asks a lot of big questions. In particular, how we can share or experience love in a world abandoned by God. Weighty stuff. But anyway, Malick is already on to his next two films, and a very small morsel of info concerning "Knight Of Cups" has emerged.
