Natalie Portman has spent the past couple weeks shopping BYO (aka “Bring Your Own”), a comedy she wrote with college friend Laura Moses, to various Hollywood studios. According to 24 Frames, the plot centers on “two very different twentysomething women who, after finding themselves unlucky in love, decide to throw a party to which each female attendee brings an eligible bachelor.” Portman will produce and star; Anne Hathaway is rumored to have her eye on the other lead role. This is Portman’s first feature script, and darn if I’m not intrigued.
Portman will next be seen in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan starting December 3rd — if the buzz is to be believed, the role could land her a prime spot on the Oscar telecast. The first half of 2011 is a big one for Ms. Portman, with three major releases: No Strings Attached (January 21st), Your Highness (April 8th), Thor (May 6th). Recently, the in-demand actress has been rumored for such high profile projects as The Dark Knight Rises, the Alien prequel, and Superman: Man of Steel.
