Javier Bardem Cast in New Terrence Malick Film

Javier Bardem has just been cast alongside Christian Bale to star in a new romantic drama helmed by renowned Hollywood director Terrence Malick. The film, still untitled is set to start filming next Fall.

The notoriously press-averse director has made only four films in his 35-year long career. But this year is an unusually productive one for the reclusive director. Malick currently has two movies in the works—a film entitled The Tree of Life, which is already in post-production and stars Sean Penn and Brad Pitt, and this as yet unnamed romantic drama with Bardem and Bale, which Rachel McAdams and Olga Kurylenko have also signed on for.

We just hope Bardem is spared one of Bale's notorious on-set outbursts, although something tells us, he'll hold his own just fine.

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
