Rooney Mara in new set photos from Terrence Malick's Lawless
It’s a credit to the genius of Terrence Malick that his film LAWLESS can be one of the most anticipated movies of the year, yet nobody really knows what its about or even when it’s going to come out. What we do know is that Rooney Mara is going to be starring in the film in some capacity, but with Malick films, you never really know who’s “starring” in his films until you see the final product. But one can assume Rooney Mara is going to have a large role since this is the second batch of set photos featuring the young actress (the first featured Rooney Mara and Ryan Gosling). But again, maybe these photos are the only time she appears in the film, we just don’t really know right now.
What we can assume is that the brief plot synopsis that made its way online (and then was later deleted) says it’s a story about “two intersecting love triangles. It is a story of sexual obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas.” Who would have thought Terrence Malick was such a fan of the music scene in Austin, TX? But it’s interesting that this logline was deleted so soon after it came out. Malick has a tendency to change the plot of his films as he’s filming, so we can only guess what’s going to happen. But it’s a good sign that we’re getting a lot of Rooney Mara images this far into the process.
Along with Rooney Mara, the film is set to star (in some capacity) Ryan Gosling, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Haley Bennett. Oh, and the guy pictured with Rooney Mara is Alan Palomo of Neon Indian. No release date yet for LAWLESS, but I suspect it will make the festival rounds next year. And when is Rooney Mara going to change her hair back? (JustJared)
