American film director Terrence Malick is shooting a new film in Iceland, Vísir reports.

There’s a great deal of secrecy surrounding the film thus far, but Vísir was able to confirm with sources that British actor Ben Kingsley, known for his Oscar-winning turn as Mohandas Ghandi, among other notable roles, has a part in the film. Icelandic actor Björn Thors (Paris of the North; The Deep) is also in the film.

A photo on Vísir shows Malick’s film team working in the area around the Krafla caldera in the Mývatn region in North Iceland.

Terrence Malick has filmed previously in Iceland; part of his Oscar-nominated 2011 film Tree of Life was shot in the country, as were large portions of his 2016 IMAX documentary Voyage of Time.
