Mila Kunis joins Portman in Aronofsky's BLACK SWAN

Last month we reported that director Darren Aronofsky was gonna follow up his hit film The Wrestler, by making Natalie Portman dance in his new film, Black Swan. The supernatural thriller centers on a veteran ballerina(Portman), who finds herself locked in a competitive situation with a rival dancer.

It sounds weird, but Portman in skin tight outfits? What on earth could sweeten the deal? Well, THR reports that Forgetting Sarah Marshall star, Mila Kunis will play the rival, Lilly, with strange occurrences between the two increasing as they prepare for a big performance. But it’s unclear whether the rival is a supernatural apparition or if the protagonist is simply having delusions.

Kunis was a busy girl at Comic-Con last week. She made panel appearances for all her upcoming and current projects, including: Denzel Washington's new action flick The Book Of Eli, Mike Judge's new comedy Extract and her voice role on Fox's animated show Family Guy. Most of the panel questions she got would consist mainly of, "Mila, you're so hot. So Mike, I was wondering..." Every guy just had to get that in, before asking another person on the panel their real question. That's not the worse thing an actres has to deal with I guess. Wouldn't it be awesome if that's how it was in school? "Abe, you're so awesome! Now Bobby, what is the square root of 869?"

Kunis is also set to co-star alongside Steve Carrell and Tina Fey, in the comedy Date Night. Portman has joined James Franco and Danny Mcbride in Your Highness. And Aronofsky is still working on plans for a Robocop reboot.
