Natalie Portman won an Oscar for Black Swan and then promptly stopped making movies so she could be a full time mum for a while, but now she’s getting ready to go back to work, as Deadline reports she’s signed on to both of director Terrence Malick’s new movies, which are due to shoot back to back this year, called Knight of Cups and Lawless.
These are the first movies she has committed to since Black Swan (although she;s also contractually obliged to star in Thor 2).
Knight of Cups will start shooting this summer and already has Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Isabel Lucas attached to star. Lawless begins production in the fall and is set to star Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett, Haley Bennett, and Justin Wheelon. As is the case with most Terrence Malick projects, no story details have been released for either movie.
