Zimbo has posted these new images of Christian Bale in the company of Isabel Lucas on the set of Terrence Malick’s ‘Knight Of Cups,’ one of two films Malick is filming back-to-back in 2012. This new batch of images follows a series of set pics featuring Bale filming alongside the likes of Freida Pinto, Cate Blanchett, Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots and Natalie Portman. As a massive Terrence Malick fan it feels slightly bizarre – yet thoroughly thumbs-up worthy – that he’s filming two films this year. Since his debut film in 1973, ‘Badlands,’ the acclaimed filmmaker has only made four other flicks; ‘Days Of Heaven,’ ‘The Thin Red Line,’ ‘The New World,’ and last years ‘The Tree of Life’ – which won the 2011 Palme d’Or at Cannes. Besides ‘Knight Of Cups,’ Malick has been shooting the tentatively-titled ‘Lawless’ this year. ‘Knight Of Cups’ stars Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Natalie Portman, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto and Justin Wheelon, while ’Lawless’ will star Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, and Natalie Portman.

Terrence Malick also has a romantic-drama, ‘To The Wonder,’ filmed and rumoured for release later this year. ‘To The Wonder’ stars the likes of Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper, Rachel McAdams, Michael Sheen, Amanda Peet, Jessica Chastain and Rachel Weisz. The story concerns a philanderer (Ben Affleck) who, feeling at loose ends, travels to Paris, where he enters a hot-and-heavy affair with a European woman (Olga Kurylenko). Said Lothario returns home to Oklahoma, where he marries the European woman (in part for visa reasons). When the relationship founders, he rekindles a romance with a hometown girl (Rachel McAdams) with whom he’s had a long history. Expect more details related to ‘Knight Of Cups’ and the tentatively-titled ‘Lawless’ shortly.
