Terrence Malick was seen filming Christian Bale at the Austin City Limits Festival this past weekend. It was announced last month that Malick would direct Bale in a follow-up to The Tree of Life, but it isn’t clear if they were shooting for the film.
It’s highly improbable since the film the two are rumored to be working on involves dinosaurs and volcanoes, leaving many to wonder why they would be shooting at a music festival in Texas. Many are considering this an impromptu filming session, speculating that it has nothing to do with the film. It has raised even more eyebrows due to the fact that Bale is still heavily involved in the filming of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.
Collider noted that Malick has announced an untitled project and that Bale would actually be involved in that and not the Voyage of Time like originally reported.
