Val Kilmer Wields Chainsaw, Uses Walker In Set Pics From Terrence Malick's Latest

We've seen a lot of set pics over the past few months of various actors dropping in to Terrence Malick's "Knight Of Cups" and his untitled music-set movie now filming in Austin. But Val Kilmer wins the prize for having the best snaps of any the stars caught on camera. Of all the people who are going to end up getting cut from this movie, here's hoping he isn't.

As usual, Malick and his crew visited Fun Fun Fun Fest this weekend and a surprise guest was on hand in Val Kilmer. Along with Rooney Mara, he joined Black Lips on stage and entered with a walker, wielded a chainsaw, cut his own hair (probably a wig) and then was "forcibly removed." Awesome. We're calling for an immediate Black Lips/Val Kilmer North American tour and/or "The Doors 2" detailing what would've happened if Jim Morrison lived.

Anyway, check out some of the pics below along with a video of Kilmer introducing the band. Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling, Natalie Portman, Benicio Del Toro, Holly Hunter, The Lizardman and Berenice Marlohe are all in this movie too to some degree.

    I think Terry's just getting off on this whole god-complex thing. He's got everyone in Hollywood eating out of the palm of his hand, and he wants to see how long he can keep fucking with us before we all lose interest and stop giving him our money. I feel like he risks overplaying his hand with this one though.

    You are trying sooooo hard lol

    What myth exactly? I don't think it's that crazy for a person like Val Kilmer to take a week out of his schedule to shoot something for someone he probably considers a great filmmaker. And sure, movie stars help Malick get movies made, but isn't that... completely normal?

  • MW | November 5, 2012 12:38 AM

    Actors, yes. Right. But that's what I'm saying -- these stars are all clamoring to work with him, knowing that there's a good chance their parts might be completely cut from the finished movie. It's the power of the Terry myth, it's the reason he's able to make movies at all. or something like that.

    er... that should be "his movies DON'T match up to what you're saying."

  • dan | November 4, 2012 11:57 PM

    "Everyone in Hollywood" meaning actors, right? As for the rest, his movies match up to what you're saying. A majority of what we've seen in set pictures/videos probably won't even end up in the movie.

    I take that back. He'll never overplay his hand. The man wields powers beyond belief, the machine is bigger than all of us. We'll never be able to look away, fixated, trying to get to the bottom of it all, and he'll be off somewhere, pulling the strings and laughing...

    I am starting to think that this is going to go the direction of Garry Marshall's films New Years Eve and valentines day and not some brilliant film on music festivals. Some times there is too many cameos and this film is starting to sound like that.

  • Ted | November 4, 2012 7:48 PM

    I think everyone is fairly confident 95% of these "cameos" are not going to be in the final cut. This is Terrence Malick - I don't think anyone is worried about his ability to edit out extraneous characters and worthless cameos. For god's sake, this is a man who regularly edits out key supporting roles and sometimes even leads.

    This film is pretty fucking weird

    Not a wig, Kevin. Not a wig:

    With every week, this film's existence becomes an increasingly bizarre prospect.
