After Brad Pitt starrer 'The Tree of Life', Malick, will explore the theme of love and truth in the film, which has already gone on floors in Santa Monica. Also starring Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchett, 'Knight of Cups' is set to hit the big screen internationally in 2013.
Pinto, born in Mumbai, has been making strides in Hollywood since starring in Danny Boyle's Oscar-winning movie 'Slumdog Millionaire'. Pinto has successfully avoided being stereotyped in Hollywood by playing a variety of roles in movies like 'You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger', 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' and 'Immortals'.
Bale, an Oscar-winning actor, is famous for his methodical approach to roles. He will be next seen in theatres in 'The Dark Knight Rises', the final triology of Christopher Nolan's Batman saga.
Malick, considered Hollywood's big foot for being extremely reclusive, has directed only five feature films in his four decade long career but his films are highly regarded.
