As we previously reported, there are still no plot details about the upcoming Jupiter Ascending project. The only thing we know is that it is an original creation by Andy and Lana Wachowski.
And that was enough for us. For a moment.
Now, we’re even more excited about this movie because the above mentioned duo wants Natalie Portman to star in the whole thing!
According to the latest reports, Portman is being “courted” to star in the film and is “seriously weighing” the part as one of her first big roles after her pregnancy (just for a record, she was five months pregnant when she received the Best Actress Oscar for her role in Black Swan).
Now, it looks that Portman is back for good – she is currently believed to be working on a documentary based on Jonathan Safran Foer’s book Eating Animals, but she is also reportedly attached to Thor 2.
As for Jupiter Ascending production is expected to start after the Wachowskis finish work on their latest project Cloud Atlas.
So, make sure you stay tuned for more details!
