Earlier today we revealed and essentially confirmed what was quietly in the cards for a few weeks now: John Hillcoat's Prohibition crime flick "The Wettest County" starring Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain and many more is changing its name to "Lawless."

With the dude from Neon Indian popping up in a recent set photo, and Malick having lensed indie friendly folks like Arcade Fire, Iron & Wine and Fleet Foxes last year during pre-production at Austin City Limits, it seemed like his upcoming "Lawless" was shaping up to be some kind of "The Tree Of Life: Pitchfork Edition." But a fascinating, oddball development makes this movie continue to be a total headscratcher.

Toldja? Okay, maybe not quite, but we read the tea leaves on this just a couple of weeks ago, and now it's pretty much official. John Hillcoat's "The Wettest County" will now be titled "Lawless." Sorry Terrence Malick!

While Cannes Film Festival prognosticators continue to ponder if one or both of Terrence Malick's two films in post-production -- "The Voyage Of Time" and his still untitled romance, aka "The Burial" -- will make it to the Croisette, all we can do is keep pulling together the scraps of info, while we wait for the movies to appear.

While the film portion of SXSW might be over, this weekend in Austin a plethora of bands are vying for attention in the clubs and streets of the city for the music portion of the festival. And it appears Terrence Malick was on hand as well.

It looks like a layer from Terrence Malick's otherwise mysterious "Lawless" has been peeled back. The film, one of two the director will shoot this year, has been working under a veil of secrecy thus far, but it looks like that pre-production work last fall at the Austin City Limits music festival was a good practice round for the upcoming film. And a new logline for the film reveals another interesting thematic turn for the helmer.

Nope, still no plot details or anything really about Terrence Malick's upcoming back-to-back films "Lawless" and "Knight Of Cups," but as if we couldn't be any more stoked about what the elusive filmmaker will bring to us next, here comes this little bombshell. Natalie Portman will be joining both films. Damn.

While "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" might not have been the box office smash the studio were hoping for (it turns out there's a reason people don't open three-hour-long R-rated thrillers the week before Christmas), there's one person who's done pretty well out of the whole thing: Rooney Mara. Only eighteen months ago, the actress was best known as the much-derided lead of the "Nightmare On Elm Street" remake, and for being twelfth-billed in "Youth In Revolt." But then she took a small role in David Fincher's "The Social Network," a performance that saw her win the much sought-after part of Lisbeth Salander in the director's next film, and if anyone's come out smelling of roses, it's her.

While it's not nearly as sexy as the video footage of Terrence Malick in action, directing Christian Bale at the Austin City Limits music festival in September, it's still something. And given how tightly everything else is kept under lock and key for Terrence Malick's films, we'll take what we can get.
