Natalie Portman Wanted for ‘Jupiter Ascending’

Natalie Portman wanted for Jupiter Ascending Directors Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski are courting actress Natalie Portman to star in their new sci-fi project Jupiter Ascending.

The actress is seriously considering the project, which would mark her first project back after giving birth to her son, Aleph, in June. Jupiter Ascending won't begin shooting until this fall, which will give the actress more time with her newborn. A rep for Natalie Portman would not comment on the story.

Little is known about the plot of Jupiter Ascending, except that it marks Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski's return to their sci-fi roots. We first reported on Jupiter Ascending back in October, which will certainly be Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski's next project after they finish post-production on Cloud Atlas.

Jupiter Ascending was released February 6th, 2015.
