Christian Bale is following his final turn as Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight Rises with two Terrence Malick directed projects, both of which star Natalie Portman. Lawless (which may get a title change due to director John Hillcoat's Lawless coming out this summer; a prohibition drama starring Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy) follows a number of young lovers and is set against the Austin music scene. Knight of Cups is about a man in search of love and truth. New set pics have surfaced today, which are believed to be from Knight of Cups. This has not been confirmed, though, as these may also be scenes from Lawless. The photos in question feature both Christian Bale and Natalie Portman. Take a look as Bale checks Portman for sand fleas.
