Natalie Portman passes on “Adaline”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Natalie Portman’s trying to figure out her first role following a short break from the industry to deliver her first child. But she decided late last night that it won’t be “Adaline.”
Reps for the Oscar-winning actress tell EW.com that Portman has passed on the drama “Adaline,” a feature about a woman who stops aging after a freak accident. The same role was dropped by Katherine Heigl last year. At the time, the “Knocked Up” actress was going to star in the film for director Andy Tennant (“Hitch”). Now it’s back in limbo, with director Gabriele Muccino (“Seven Pounds”) attached.
It doesn’t seem like Portman has been out of the game for very long. Following a long Oscar campaign for Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” she appeared in a number of films this year, from “Thor” to the stoner comedy “Your Highness” with James Franco and Danny McBride.
But the next project she chooses will be her first true follow up to “Swan.” The role hasn’t found her yet, so Portman continues to look.
