According to a recent report from 24 Frames Natalie Portamn is currently in talks with the Wachowskis' to join their next sci-fi action film Jupiter Ascending. If Portman takes it, this would be her first film project since she had her baby. The wouldn't be the first time Portman worked with the Wachowskis', she also starred in V for Vendetta, which they wrote and produced. The site says,
the actress has been courted by Lana and Andy Wachowski to star in 'Jupiter Ascending,' the science-fiction movie the filmmakers aim to shoot when they finish cutting their much-anticipated 'Cloud Atlas.' Portman, the person said, was seriously weighing taking the part.
The project is of course set up at Warner Bros. and is scheduled to start shooting in the fall of this year. Unfortunately at this time there are no details on what this movie will be about.
I hope Portman ends up attaching herself to the project, she's one of Hollywood's most talented actresses, and it would be awesome to see her jump back in a solid sci-fi action film, which I hope this turns out to be. With the Wachowskis' behind it, there's no doubt that it will be entertaining as hell.
