Natalie Portman In Talks With Wachowski's For Jupiter Ascending



The LA Times Blog, 24 Frames (via ComingSoon.net), is reporting that Natalie Portman may be reuniting with the Wachowski's on their next sci-fi film, Jupiter Ascending.

Previously, Portman and the Wachowski's worked together on V For Vendetta, of which Portman starred as Evey, the protege to Hugo Weaving's "V."

Jupiter Ascending, from Warner Bros., is being described as an epic sci-fi franchise, and it was previously reported that the Wachowski's had been looking for "A-List" talent for the movie.

24 Frames states, "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."

Jupiter Ascending is said to begin production this Fall; however, Portman is signed on for Thor 2, which has a release date of May 2013 and has yet to begin filming. Sounds like there quite possibly could be a confict.
