Natalie Portman has signed up for two new Terrence Malick movies.
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.
'Knight of Cups' also stars Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Isabel Lucas and as the plot remains a secret, it is not known what part Natalie will play.
Portman, Bale and Blanchett will also star in 'Lawless', as will Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Haley Bennett and again the storyline is not known.
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'.
She is also expected to take part in is the forthcoming 'Thor' sequel as Jane Foster alongside Chris Hemsworth as the titular Marvel character.
