At least one of Terrence Malick’s new films (shot simultaneously over the course of several years) has a chance at debuting at Cannes this year. Malick has been working on an untitled film set in the Austin, Texas music scene, but “Knight of Cups” – a film about celebrity excess – has received more publicity due to leads Christian Bale and Natalie Portman. As reported by The Film Stage, actor Joe Manganiello confirmed in an interview earlier this week that he has made the final cut of “Cups,” suggesting the film has been completed and is in the distribution process.
“Knight of Cups” would follow Malick’s 2013 rumination on faith and love, “To the Wonder” and the 2011 Palme d’Or winner “The Tree of Life.”
