With critics lining up to praise Natalie Portman's performance in the upcoming psychological thriller Black Swan – going so far as to say she's a shoe-in for an Oscar nomination – the actress is now busy lining up her future gigs, one of which may involve a Disney character we're all very familiar with.
Natalie Portman to Play an Edgy Snow White?
Word has it (via Pajiba) that Portman "interested" in playing Snow White in an edgy re-imagining of the character – one that, from what we understand, will be just a tad different from the goodie-gumdrops version we're all familiar with now. Furthermore, they also report that Jean-Pierre Jeunet – known for his whimsical comedic films like Amelie and the recent Micmacs – is considering the directing job.
No word on what the story will be about yet, though they could take it in a number of directions – from setting it in contemporary times and making Snow White into some sketchy chick who needs help to going all-out fantasy with it and setting it in a forest full of seven dirty old dwarfs. Needless to say, with Portman and Jeunet involved, this is a project worth keeping your eyes on.
