FilmNation pic to star Christian Bale, Javier Bardem

Terrence Malick is scheduled to begin shooting an untitled romantic drama this fall with Christian Bale, Javier Bardem, Rachel McAdams and Olga Kurylenko.

FilmNation Entertainment, which will be handling international sales and distribution, made the announcement Wednesday.

The film will be produced by Nicolas Gonda, Sarah Green and Bill Pohlad of River Road but further details are scanty. The producing trio, in a statement, said, “We are delighted to be part of this extraordinary team; everyone involved brings a unique perspective to this powerful and moving love story.”

Malick has a reputation for being exacting in completing his films, which include “Badlands,” “Days of Heaven” “The Thin Red Line,” “The New World.” His most recent project, the drama “Tree of Life,” stars Sean Penn and Brad Pitt and is due out later this year through Apparition, the fledgling distribution company Pohlad launched last year with Bob Berney.

River Road is financing “Tree,” and Pohlad is producing with Green and Grant Hill.
