Natalie Portman has signed up for two new Terrence Malick movies, although it is unclear what roles she will play.
The Oscar-winning actress - who is taking some time off from Hollywood following the birth of her son Aleph with partner Benjamin Millipied last June - will star in 'Knight of Cups' and 'Lawless', with the former set to start shooting this summer and the latter straight after, Deadline.com reports.
However, Bale was recently overheard saying his character was "kind of an asshole".
Although the films share some cast members, they've been described as separate narratives, so it's not thought they're linked in any plot way.
Last month, it was revealed Natalie was "seriously" considering a lead role in 'Jupiter Ascending'.
