Terrence Malick is Working on a Third Film for 2010?

Must. Remain. Calm. So I can type this properly.

It began with a report from Nikki Finke. It continued with a /film report: Terrence Malick is working on another movie.

Well, what’s this? Does Terrence Malick have yet another film in the works? According to Nikki Finke he does. She’s reporting that the reclusive, methodical filmmaker is prepping “an as yet untitled love story” for which he’s written a script. Claim is that he’s got Christian Bale, Javier Bardem, Olga Kurylenko and Rachel McAdams on board to appear in the movie.

Nikki Finke’s rather breathless report (she says “he’s written and directed” the film) is light on details beyond the basics. But when we’re talking about a new Malick film the basics are all we’re likely to get for a while. I’d expect some trade confirmation of this to be coming down right quick. At least, that’s how I’m interpreting Finke’s rush to post. She says the plan is to shoot the film later this year.
