We haven’t seen a vast amount Natalie Portman in the last couple of years, as while she’s appeared in the Thor films and a couple of other movies, she’s largely devoted herself to being a mother. However now she’s got a new film and she’s going French, as she’s set to appear Planetarium, according to Variety.
Johny Depp’s daughter, Lily Rose Depp, is also set to star, with her and Partman playing spiritualist sisters, who are believed to possess the supernatural ability to connect with ghosts. There are few other plot details, although the 1930s French-set film has a plot with a political context that ‘will have a modern resonance with the current crisis and rise of extremism in Europe’, which suggests it will be set against the backdrop of the rise of Naziism.
Rebecca Zlotowski (Grand Central) will direct, from a script she co-wrote with Robin Campillo (who most recent wrote and directed the excellent, gay-themed Eastern Boys). The plan is to shoot in September with the movie ready for release by the middle of 2016.
