Christian Bale and Terrence Malick spotted at the Austin City Limits music festival

Christian Bale took time out from filming THE DARK KNIGHT RISES to fly down to Austin, TX to meet with reclusive director Terrence Malick. The two were spotted at the Austin City Limits music festival during performances by Pretty Lights, Bright Eyes and Coldplay. So the next question is; what were they doing there and were they filming a movie? Unfortunately, Malick is frustratingly secretive about his movies, so we have no way of knowing if they were filming something or just doing research. Many sites are speculating that Malick’s next film (not the romantic drama with Ben Affleck) which features Christian Bale and Haley Bennet, might be a variation of the canned Jerry Lee Lewis biopic the director had worked years ago. But of course, that’s pure speculation at this point.
There are so few images of Terrence Malick that I thought the image below was worthwhile just so you could see one of the most eccentric directors today at work. And it’s always fun to speculate about films that haven’t even been announced yet.
