Sometime during the insanity of SXSW, Neon Indian frontman Alan Palomo filmed a scene with director Terrence Malick for the upcoming film Lawless. Pitchfork reported Palomo worked alongside up-and-coming actress Rooney Mara for the brief shoot.
Described by IMDB as the story of “two intersecting love triangles” as well as “sexual obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas,” Lawless will also feature A-list talent among the likes of Ryan Gosling, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett.
Since Lawless will be heavily influenced by music, it’s no surprise that Malick also filmed bands like Arcade Fire, Iron & Wine, Fleet Foxes, YACHT and Big Freedia at last year’s Austin City Limits festival and Fun Fun Fun Fest.
Lawless is expected to be released in 2013.
