The plot seems rather vague so far; Haley Bennett, Val Kilmer and Benicio Del Toro and countless others are also meant to star, but so far their characters remain unknown. The film reunites Terrence Malick with Natalie Portman, Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett, all of whom starred in Malick's 2015 romance 'Knight of Cups'. Plus, it's not the first film this year to feature both Callie Hernandez and Michael Fassbender, who will be starring together in 'Alien: Covenant'. You can also expect cameos from the likes of Patti Smith, Lykke Li, Florence Welch, Iggy Pop, former Sex Pistols star John Lydon and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, as well as bands such as Black Lips, Arcade Fire and Fleet Foxes.

'Song To Song' marks the second film in less than a year showcasing Ryan Gosling's hidden musical talents. He recently starred alongside Emma Stone in the LA-based jazz musical 'La La Land', in which he actually learned to play piano properly from original music by Randy Kerber.

Of course, 'La La Land' wasn't Gosling's first venture into music. In 2007, he was in a band called Dead Man's Bones with Zach Shields; they even released an album in 2009 through ANTI- Records, featuring the Silverlake Conservatory Children's Choir (coincidentally foundered by the aforementioned Flea). They followed that with a North American tour in which they collaborated with a different children's choir in every show. Gosling has since spoken about releasing a second Dead Man's Bones album, but so far they are yet to hit the studio.
