Terrence Malick has assembled all-star casts for his next two films, which he’ll shoot back to back in 2012: Lawless and Knight of Cups. Glen Basner’s FilmNation will launch both projects to foreign buyers at the American Film Market, which gets underway Wednesday in Santa Monica.
Ryan Gosling will stake a starring role in Lawless, while the supporting cast includes Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara and Haley Bennett.
Bale will take the lead in Knight of Cups, which also stars Blanchett and Isabel Lucas. FilmNation will represent international rights, while CAA is representing domestic rights.
Malick is in pre-production on both films, but is keeping mum as to the plots of each.
“FilmNation couldn’t be happier to continue to act as Terrence’s international sales agency. Terrence is a brilliant filmmaker and an enormous drw for talent and filmmakers alike. We look forward to robust sales at AFM on both of these films,” Basner said.
FilmNation is virtually sold out of Malick’s currently untitled film starring Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem and Rachel Weisz. That movie is in post-production.
Sarah Green and Nicolas Gonda, Malick’s longtime producers, are reteaming with the filmmaker on Lawless and Knight of Cups. The three worked together on Malick’s worldwide indie hit The Tree of Life, which Summit International handled internationally.
