4. The Untitled Austin Film is about love triangles and music
The logline for the film originally known as Lawless (Malick gave that title to director John Hillcoat) is, “Two intersecting love triangles and a story of sexual obsession and betrayal set against Austin’s vibrant and colorful music scene.” Starting with the intersecting love triangles, we know based on unauthorized set photos that Ryan Gosling gets intimate with both Blanchett and Rooney Mara, while Michael Fassbender has onscreen relations with Mara and marries Portman’s character. On the music front, Malick’s obsession with classical music is well known, but with this Untitled Austin Film it would appear he is trading in the violins for guitars. The film is not merely set against the backdrop of the Austin music scene but was largely shot on stage, backstage and in the crowds of the indie rock world. The music website Pitchfork has an exhaustive list of sightings of Malick and his stars at concerts, with highlights including Patti Smith serenading Mara, Bale playing the bongos with The Fleet Foxes and Val Kilmer singing with The Black Lips, while also taking a chainsaw to an amp and cutting his hair with a knife.

According to a recent posting of Warwick Davis’ YouTube channel on Friday, the “Star Wars” actor has decided to take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. He admitted to actually having challenged by six people to take on said challenge and decided that due to his size and stature, that he would use a more proportionate receptacle. Davis mentioned he was challenged by Max Landis, Hayley Burroughs, J.J. Lucia-Wright of Feel the Force, James Burns of Jedi News, Simon Lane of Yogscast, and Stephen Merchant. However, Davis didn’t seem to expect a huge amount of ice water to be dumped on him thereafter and quickly attempted to dry himself off and named off his next victims as he laid down his “icy gauntlet” to “Willow’s” Val Kilmer, “Harry Potter’s” Tom Felton, and Bear Grylls where Davis mentions that he likes to roll around in ice naked regardless. Davis is known for his roles as the Ewok Wicket in “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi”, part of the Goblin Corp in “Labyrinth”, “Harry Potter” and the series of Leprechaun horror movies from back in the day.
