Patti Smith and Iggy Pop are reportedly featuring in Terrence Malick’s upcoming movie, Song to Song. The Austin-set romantic film, is set to be released in March, and also include appearances from Lykke Li, Arcade Fire, the Black Lips, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Song to Song – previously entitled Lawless, and then Weightless – has taken in over half a decade to make. According to an official synopsis obtained by IndieWire, it will be a “modern love story” set against the Austin, Texas music scene, and depicts “two entangled couples” as they “chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.” Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Michael Fassbender all make appearances (see a promo shot of all three above).
Despite very little else being known about the drama, there has been numerous Hollywood rumours circulating around the project for years. In the scene Song to Song recorded in 2012, actor Val Kilmer scared the audience by destroying the Black Lips’s amp with a chainsaw. Following this he cut off clumps of his own hair with a bowie knife.

Song to Song is due to be released in U.K cinemas on March 17 2017
