The Playlist has a new article up about Cloud Atlas, the film project that might be Natalie’s role. We first heard that Tom Tykwer would be directing. Then it was Tykwer writing and the Wachowski’s directing. Now, from the EW interview, Natalie says that they’re all going to be directing.
“I don’t know what’s going on with financing,” Portman told EW in an interview that’s not online yet. “I read it while doing [The Wachowski produced] ‘V for Vendetta’ and I gave it to the Wachowskis and to Tom Tykwer (he shot a “Paris Je Taime” short with her around the same time). Now they’re directing it together, the three of them. I will have some acting role in it if it happens, but probably nothing major.”
