Natalie Portman gets lawless

1 min read

One of the hardest working and most versatile actresses in Hollywood, Natalie Portman is once again getting ready to star in a few new films this year. While talks between her and the Wachowski brothers are still ongoing, for their sci-fi project Jupiter Ascending, the actress will also be getting ready to star in two films directed by Terrence Malick.

The two films that Malick as signed Portman up for so far, are called Lawless and Knight of cups. Knight of cups will also star Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Isabel Lucas, with Malick being his usual secretive self as to the exact details of the film plot.

Knight of cups starts shooting later this year, which will then be followed up with Bale and Blanchett joining Portman again for Lawless, which also features Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Haley Bennett.

So far, the only info we have for Lawless, is that Bale describes his buff character as “kind of an asshole”. So no change there for Batman at least. I’m just hoping that Portman finds time to appear in the sequel to Thor at least.
