Wrestler director Darren Aronofsky’s next project, Black Swan, is inching closer to production now that Natalie Portman is attached as the lead. Also? The plot sounds awesome:
“Swan” centers on a veteran ballerina (Portman) who finds herself locked in a competitive situation with a rival dancer, with the stakes and twists increasing as the dancers approach a big performance. But it’s unclear whether the rival is a supernatural apparition or if the protagonist is simply having delusions. [THR]
You know, just your basic feuding-ballerina-where-one-of-the-ballerinas-maybe-isn’t-real story. Ho hum, where’s the twist? They should change the lead to a male ballerina, or as we say in the business, a ballerino. And I don’t mean to brag, but I was practically born in this leotard. (*touches floor with crotch bulge*)
