Actor Christian Bale has reportedly signed on for another untitled project from director Terrence Malick. This new movie is not the Untitled Terrence Malick Project, which is currently in post-production, but a new project which the director hopes to shoot in early 2012.

Little is known about the story of this mystery movie, although it is said to feature a much smaller cast, with the male lead (Christian Bale) and female lead driving the bulk of the story. While the female lead has not yet been cast, Terrence Malick has reportedly narrowed down the choices to Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, Clémence Poésy, and Mia Wasikowska.

Sarah Green (The Tree of Life) is on board to produce this untitled project. Christian Bale and Terrence Malick previously worked together in the 2005 drama The New World.
