FilmNation has two hot tickets to bring to the AFM: Topliners Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett are each set to star in two upcoming Terence Malick films. Bale will appear alongside Blanchett, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Haley Bennett in Lawless
, while Knight of Cups
will star Bale, Blanchett and Isael Lucas. Both films are in pre-production and news of this is no doubt causing Malick fans to have heart palpitations.
Plots details are non-existent. And don't forget Malick also has an untitled love story (pictured) starring Ben Affleck, Rachel Adams, Javier Bardem and Rachel Weisz (among others), currently in post, also in the hands of FilmNation Glen Basner, who says he ''couldn't be happier to continue to act as Terrence's international sales agency.''
At AFM, FilmNation also is selling The Comedian as well as Bale's The Flowers of War, which opens in Asia in December and is expected to pick up a North American buyer soon.
