Natalie Portman to go from classy in ‘Black Swan’ to raunchy in ‘BYO’
HollywoodNews.com: Being the hot buzz around town this award season with her film “Black Swan,” Natalie Portman is flexing her muscle as a screenwriter.
The actress is shopping around a raunchy girl comedy with her college pal Laura Moses called “BYO” (aka Bring Your Own). The Los Angeles Times had the news.
“BYO” centers around two twentysomething women who are so desperate, they throw a party whereby female attendees bring fetching single guys. Studio execs who’ve read the script call it a “Superbad” for girls. Sounds like Portman’s buddy Adam Samberg from “Saturday Night Live” is rubbing off on her.
Portman would headline as one of the females with Anne Hathaway interested in the second role. Many Hollywood studios have passed on the project, but it could still get produced through indie backing or partial studio funding.
The edgy “Black Swan” bows on December 3.
