Natalie Portman Writing First Film
Natalie Portman, who will be seen in Mila Kunis Black Swan opening on December 3rd, has written her first screenplay. The actress, along with a collage pal Laura Moses, has written a comedy that they are currently shopping to Hollywood studios.
According to two execs that have read the script, the film can be described as Superbad, but with females as the main characters. The film which is titled BYO (Bring your Own), revolves around two twenty-something women who are unlucky in love and decide to throw a party. At the party, each female attending brings an eligible bachelor.
So far the film has been passed on by several studios, and will most likely end up with independent financing. Portman is looking to play one of the female leads and work as producer on the movie, while Anne Hathaway has shown interest in the second role.
Reps for Hathaway and Portman could not be reached for comment.
