A couple weeks ago we reported that Martin Scorcese beat out Natalie to the adaptation rights for Furious Love, the story behind the Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor relationship.
Now Indiewire’s Anne Thompson has indulged in a bit of fantasy casting, coming up with a bunch of actors and actresses for the lead roles. Natalie and Gerard Butler are one of the matchups.
Ditto for these two. If anyone can raise Portman’s temperature, it would be Butler. He’d have to step up and bring some depth to the rugged masculinity he so easily depicts. Portman probably has this in her, but it won’t come naturally.
