Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling spoke to Indiewire about the still-untitled Terrence Malick's project, which centers around intersecting love triangles within the rock scene in Austin, Texas, hehnemusic reports.

It is expected that Robert Plant's role will be a cameo of some sort, but no further details are available at this time regarding his participation or a proposed release schedule.

In addition to Gosling, the picture stars Rooney Mara ("The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo") along with Christian Bale ("The Dark Knight Rises"), Cate Blanchett ("The Lord Of The Rings") and Natalie Portman ("Black Swan").

Indiewire asked which Malick film he was going to appear in two pictures were shot last summer.

"I'm in the music one," said Gosling. "[Michael] Fassbender, Val Kilmer, Patti Smith, Robert Plant, Johnny Rotten, the Black Lips, just I mean every day was unlike anything."

The actor said Malick changed his approach this time: where he used to write expansive, beautiful screenplays which he would then essentially discard when he got to set - this time, he didnt even bother.

"No, there was no script," the actor said when quizzed about it. "I think he used to have to write them and now I think they're onto the fact that he doesn't use them anyway so they're not requiring them."

    What the ****. I was so ready to call bs on this until I read the original source which is listed on march 29. Makes it even trickier since this is based Malick doing his god knows what methods to filming. Am I fooled today?
