Though most audiences are waiting to see Terrence Malick’s latest film "The Tree of Life" as it continues to roll out across the country, the filmmaker’s most loyal fans can’t wait to hear details about what he is working on next. In the midst of a Fort Worth Weekly feature on Texas filmmaker and producer James Johnston, it's revealed that, Charles Baker, who plays the recurring character Skinny Pete on AMC’s "Breaking Bad," will appear in Malick’s next, as-yet-untitled film. Baker has a varied CV to date, but Malick's film will definitely be his biggest gig to date and may help bring "Breaking Bad" fans into the ever-growing fold of Malick obsessives.

Though most audiences are waiting to see Terrence Malick’s latest film "The Tree of Life" as it continues to roll out across the country, the filmmaker’s most loyal fans can’t wait to hear details about what he is working on next. In the midst of a Fort Worth Weekly feature on Texas filmmaker and producer James Johnston, it's revealed that, Charles Baker, who plays the recurring character Skinny Pete on AMC’s "Breaking Bad," will appear in Malick’s next, as-yet-untitled film. Baker has a varied CV to date, but Malick's film will definitely be his biggest gig to date and may help bring "Breaking Bad" fans into the ever-growing fold of Malick obsessives.

We’ve known for some time that the film will star Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams and it has been described as a romantic drama. Now, it looks like Baker will be joining the already impressive cast which also includes Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper, Rachel Weisz and Jessica Chastain. Though little else is known about the plot, word is already cropping up that it's even more experimental and non-narrative in structure than "The Tree Of Life." Reshoots took place this spring and so we can presume the film is in post-production, though when we'll actually see it remains to be seen, but with the director possibly planning another feature to shoot this year perhaps he'll get it in the can sooner rather than later.

But for now, the Palme d'Or winning "The Tree Of Life" should satsfy your appetite for a Malick film and then some. The film hit a bunch of key markets over the weekend, with more to come before it goes national on July 8th. Check out the dates right here. --Matthew Newlin
