Natalie Portman To Make Directing Debut

Is there anything Natalie Portman can't do? She can already act and look lovely simultaneously, which is really a lot harder than you probably realise. And now she's turning her hand to movie directing.

Portman will make her debut behind the camera with A Tale of Love and Darkness, the memoir of Amos Oz, who grew up in war torn Jerusalem in the 1940s and 50s. The book uses his childhood to tell the story of the birth of Israel. That's not light material for a first film.

Portman has signed a two-year production deal for her Handmadecharlie Films with Participant Productions. Participant is an outfit dedicated to producing films with social value. They're behind the likes of Syriana and An Inconvenient Truth.
