Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling and Michael Fassbender in set photos from Terrence Malick's latest
I’m kind of getting the feeling that Terrence Malick is only making his latest film so he can hang out with musicians. The eccentric director has been accused of asking actors to appear in his films before, just so he could hang out with them and given how much filming he’s done at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, it’s not hard to make that leap. But even if he is using the film as an excuse to hobknob with famous people, the finished product will still be better than 99% of the movies out there, so I guess we shouldn’t complain. Today we get a few new behind the scenes images and a video featuring Rooney Mara playing guitar with Black Lips. I don’t know enough about music to tell if she’s actually playing or if they just let her go up there because she’s Rooney Mara. Another highlight is the pic at the very bottom right corner, which is of the reclusive Terrence Malick, without his signature hat. He’s had more pics snapped of him during the filming of this movie than he has his whole life. In the video, Rooney Mara is the one in black and if you look closely, you can kind of see Ryan Gosling and Terrence Malick on the far left.
Michael Fassbender also hung out a lot at the festival, mostly shooting scenes with Natalie Portman. Which is odd since he just recently joined the cast and now it looks like he’s going to be a big part of the film. But that could change since Terrence Malick has a history of deleting entire roles when he gets into the editing room. For now, we know that Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender, Haley Bennett and Holly Hunter could all be in the film. Obviously, we still don’t have a title for the film (although it was called “Lawless” for a while) and still no release date. (/Film, Twitter, Twitter)
