Terrence Malick set to become super-prolific; shooting two films in 2012

Though considered one of the all-time great filmmakers, Terrence Malick has long been joked about for the glacial speed with which he produces movies. As of the release of The Tree of Life back in June, he had directed only five films over the course of 38 years.

Well, it looks as if Malick is about to get his Soderbergh on and shoot two new projects back-to-back in 2012.

According to a press release from distributor FilmNation Entertainment, Malick will next work on a movie entitled Lawless, starring Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara and Haley Bennett.

He will follow that up with Knight of Cups, also starring Bale and Blanchett, as well as Isabel Lucas.

Malick has already completed production on his next film – still untitled – starring Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem and Barry Pepper. Roadshow will distribute in Australia.

Discuss: Geez, slow down dude.
