Bale to make music film with Malick
Christian Bale has sparked speculation about his upcoming collaboration with Terrence Malick after they were seen at the Austin City Limits music festival together.
The Batman star - who has already been cast as the lead in Terrence's next film - and the reclusive filmmaker were seen alongside a camera crew at the Coldplay, Bright Eyes and Pretty Lights gigs, reported Collider.
Terrence - who lives in Austin - was also spotted talking to Christian and gesturing, as if he was giving him some acting directions in a video posted on the website.
The duo are slated to reunite for a mysterious and as-yet-untitled project that also has newcomer Haley Bennett on board.
The director had previously been working on a Jerry Lee Lewis-related project, and it is thought that this future film could potentially be a new version of that.
Christian has been filming the third and final instalment of Christopher Nolan's Batman series, The Dark Knight Rises, with Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy, while Terrence - who released The Tree Of Life this year - has been busy with another untitled project with Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams.
