Anything can happen with Malick, but I call bullshit on Michael just being a cameo/small supporting player in this new Austin-based film, as most film blogs thought. He's filmed with all the principle players this week and he's been on set more than Bale. Now I want to know how the hell this happened. It came out of nowhere.
Doubt it came out of nowhere. Remember that just because we didn’t know about it, doesn’t mean it wasn’t in the works with Michael and his people for a while. Malick is meticulous. By the time he finishes, they could all be cameos. Only time will tell.
