FilmNation Bringing Forward Two New Terrence Malick Films

FilmNation Bringing Forward Two New Terrence Malick Films

Way back at the beginning of the year, we posted the first look of an untitled Terrence Malick film that stars Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams courtesy of THR. At the time, all we knew was that it was a romantic film that also stars Javier Bardem.

Film Nation has now sent out a press release where the studio will finance two of Malick’s upcoming films–“Lawless” and “Knight of Cups”.

FilmNation Entertainment is continuing their relationship with acclaimed director Terrence Malick (“The Tree of Life”, “The Thin Red Line”) and handling international sales and distribution on his next two films. LAWLESS will star Ryan Gosling (“Drive”, “The Ides of March”) and boasts a supporting cast that includes Academy Award Winners Christian Bale (“The Dark Knight”, “The Flowers of War”), Cate Blanchett (“The Hobbit”, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”) plus Rooney Mara “(The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, “The Social Network”) and Haley Bennett (“Marley & Me”, “The Haunting of Molly Hartley”).

The second film, KNIGHT OF CUPS, will star Christian Bale with a supporting cast including Cate Blanchett and Isabel Lucas (“Immortals”, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”). Both films are currently in pre-production and will shoot back-to-back in 2012. Sarah Green (“Untitled Terrence Malick Project”, “The Tree of Life”, “The New World”, “Take Shelter”, “Mud”) and Nicolas Gonda (Untitled Terrence Malick Project, “The Tree of Life”, “The New World”) will serve as the producers on both films with FilmNation Entertainment handling international sales during this week’s AFM.

Glen Basner, CEO of FilmNation Entertainment commented: “FilmNation couldn’t be happier to continue to act as Terrence’s international sales agency. Terrence is a brilliant filmmaker and an enormous draw for talent and filmmakers alike. We look forward to robust sales at AFM on both of these films.”

“Glen Basner and the entire FilmNation team continue to be excellent partners. We are thrilled to be working with them again to bring these extraordinary projects to audiences around the world”, commented producers Sarah Green and Nicolas Gonda.

CAA will represent domestic rights to both films.
