Terrence Malick is well known for shooting endless amounts of footage, most of which we'll never see, but it seems for this upcoming duo of movies "Knight Of Cups" and the tentatively titled "Lawless," not only can he not turn off the camera, celeb friends are popping up everywhere as he continues to roll. Neon Indian dude Alan Palomo, The Cult and Matthew McConaughey are some of the faces that were snapped shooting scenes at SXSW a couple of weeks back, and now, yet another celeb has been spied shooting scenes with Malick and co.

Juno Temple has been on the verge of breaking out for quite a while. This year’s “Dirty Girl” should have been a big moment for her, but it didn’t get much of a release by the Weinstein Company. But not to worry, as Christopher Nolan is going to shine a spotlight on her in next summer’s “The Dark Knight Rises.” This winter, though, Temple will be filming “Lovelace,” the biopic of the infamous porn star, playing the best friend of Linda Lovelace, a role earmarked for Amanda Seyfried. “American Beauty” actor Wes Bentley has also joined the film, and will take on the role of Linda’s second husband, Larry Marchiano.

When "Dear John" and "Letters to Juliet" proved sleeper hits last year, it looked like Amanda Seyfried might be on her way to becoming a pretty massive star, and arriving on the back of her starring role alongside Meryl Streep in musical smash "Mamma Mia," it all seemed to be coming up Seyfried. But the actress hasn't had such a good time of it lately. She's tried to step away from the romance genre with fairy tale flick "Red Riding Hood" and sci-fi "In Time," but neither performed especially well, suggesting that if she is a draw, the audiences aren't turning up to see her sight-unseen.

When we first heard about the thriller "Gone," we thought it sounded a little low-rent, and with new cast members coming on board, that feeling hasn't quite dissipated.
