Lending their talent to an intriguing new production, Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara paired up for filming in Austin, Texas earlier this week (September 24).

The " Half Nelson" heartthrob and his "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" actress co-star got up close and personal while in the midst of an intimate scene for director Terrence Malick's yet-to-be-titled project.

The drama - which thus far is only confirmed for a July 4, 2013 Russian release date - tells the story of "two intersecting love triangles with obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas."

Boasting quite the extraordinary cast, the planned 2013 release also stars Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale and Wes Bentley.
