New details about Terrence Malick’s Austin music scene movie

Remember when Texas filmmaking legend Terrence Malick was seen filming in and around such events as South by Southwest and Fun Fun Fun Fest a few years back?

Well, that was for a movie we now know, thanks to a piece on IndieWire, is called “Song to Song,” which will be out March 17 (which seems to make it a mortal lock for a SXSW screening).

Here is the premise, according to IndieWire:

“In this modern love story set against the Austin, Texas music scene, two entangled couples — struggling songwriters Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling), and music mogul Cook (Michael Fassbender) and the waitress whom he ensnares (Natalie Portman) — chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.”

The sharp-eyed might recall seeing Mara, Gosling and Fassbender in and around Fun Fun Fun in 2012. And that Val Kilmer guy.

 Look for Patti Smith, Lykke Li, the above Black Lips, Iggy Pop, Florence and the Machine and more in the film.
