Natalie Portman had a baby and won the Best Actress Oscar for Black Swan, and she is now ready to return to acting. Deadline reports that she has signed on to star in Terrence Malick's Knight Of The Cups and Lawless. She will join Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, and Isabel Lucas in Cups, which shoots this summer. After that, she will star opposite Ryan Gosling, Bale, Blanchett, Rooney Mara, and Haley Bennett for Lawless, which will shoot in the fall. Both films are being sold internationally at EFM in Berlin starting tomorrow, so Portman joining will create extra buzz.
I have always been a fan of Portman, and enjoyed her in The Professional, the Star Wars films, and Thor. She will be great in these films as well. Both films have a great cast, so I would not be surprised if there is a lot of buzz.
We shared this video before, but it is appropriate to remind you of how great she is at crying:
What is your favorite Natalie Portman movie? Are you looking forward to seeing her in two Malick movies?
