Portman set for directing debut with ‘A Tale of Love and Darkness’November 14th, 2007 - 8:23 am ICT by admin
The movie revolves around the memoir of Israeli writer, novelist, and journalist. Amos Oz.
Naomi Foner will script the story of a childhood in war-torn 1940s and 50s Jerusalem.
Portman also admitted that her decision to work with Participant stemmed from the fact that it made intelligent, socially-relevant films like ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ and ‘Syriana’.
“We all have the same desire to make meaningful and artistically fulfilling films and are committed to the idea of stories leading to greater empathy and action for world issues,” Variety quoted Portman, as saying.
Participant’s President Ricky Strauss said that he was delighted with Portman’s decision to join hands with the company.
“She has the heart of an artist and an activist. It just seems like a natural relationship, and we couldn’t be more pleased,” he said.
The V for Vendetta star will next be seen in The Other Boleyn Girl alongside Eric Bana and Scarlett Johansson, as well as playing opposite Dustin Hoffman and Jason Bateman in Zach Helm’s Mr Magorium’s Wonder.(ANI)
