Terrence Malick has his next film, an untitled romantic drama, lined up and ready to start shooting this fall, says The Playlist.

According to The Playlist: Terrence Malick has lined up Christian Bale, Javier Bardem, Rachel McAdams and Olga Kurylenko for his next film, an untitled romantic drama that will start filming this autumn.

The director, known for his massively long breaks between projects, is looking to shoot films pretty much back-to-back for the first time in his career. Like other Malick projects, plot details are being kept under wraps.

Nicolas Gonda, Sarah Green and Bill Pohlad are producing. Pohlad is producing Malick’s "The Tree Of Life," which the filmmaker is currently editing and will be released in North America later this year through Apparition Films.

Malick’s credits include “Badlands,” “Days Of Heaven,” “The Thin Red Line” and “The New World.” While not the most prolific filmmaker in terms of numbers, Malick has produced some of the most poignant and thoughtful films of all-time.

Either way, it’s fantastic that Malick was able to bring in such talent as Christian Bale, Javier Bardem and Rachel McAdams, who are all actors I happen to like. Malick is already familiar with Bale, who had a role in his 2005 film “The New World.”

As for Bardem, he picked up an Academy Award for his memorable role in “No Country For Old Men." Working with Malick could be a breakthrough for McAdams in terms of awards consideration. Most recently seen in “Sherlock Holmes,” she was also great in “State of Play,” and this role should fit her perfectly.

Malick wrote the script and will direct. Shooting begins this fall.
