Freida Pinto’s the Latest Actress to Turn Up On Set for Malick’s ‘Knight of Cups’

+

Traditionally in movies, it’s public knowledge who’s going to be in the cast at least by the time shooting starts, with the occasional exception. Terrence Malick of course, doesn’t work “traditionally,” so a good chunk of the casting news about his latest, Knight of Cups, has come from images snapped by photographers who are hanging around the set. That’s how we know that Wes Bentley and Imogen Poots are a part of the film (if they make the final cut, that is—fellow players Cate Blanchett and Amanda Peet have expressed uncertainty as to whether or not they’ll end up in the movie). The latest addition to just turn up on set is Freida Pintothe Playlist turned up these pictures of Pinto and Bale romping with Christian Bale on the same beach where Bale shot with Natalie Portman. At this point there’s no information as to what Knight of Cups might be about (maybe Christian Bale is a psychic who uses tarot cards to save the lives of women he meets at the beach?), or whether Malick will follow it up with a movie titled Knight of Cups Rises (probably not), but if you’re trying to follow Malick’s journey as an artist, here’s more to wonder about.
