据悉,《爱与黑暗的故事》这一项目最早在2007年便有了雏形,但由于种种原因拖延至今。目前,该项目再次被提上议事日程,波特曼正在和两名编剧一同改编剧本。
 
Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman will direct her first feature film based on A Tale of Love and Darkness, a memoir by Israeli novelist Amos Oz, the author said on Wednesday.
 
The Israeli-American actress, who won a best actress Oscar in 2011 for her role in ballet drama Black Swan, will also play Oz's mother, who committed suicide when he was 12.
 
 
"She (Portman) read A Tale of Love and Darkness and asked me for the rights to make a film adaptation around five or six years ago," Oz told Reuters by telephone.
 
"I agreed because of my high esteem for her work. She's an excellent actor."
 
A Tale of Love and Darkness recounts Oz's childhood in war-torn Jerusalem in the 1940s and 1950s, his mother's death and his journey through a kibbutz and Israel's shifting politics after the birth of the nation.
 
Oz said that he has been helping prepare the script, and Portman was likely to come to Israel in September for film preparations and begin shooting in January.
 
Portman's publicist was not immediately available to comment.
 
Portman, 32, was born in Jerusalem to an Israeli father and an American mother, but was raised in the US.
 
Her first feature film role was 1994 thriller Léon: The Professional and her breakout role came in her teens as Queen Padmé Amidala in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace.
 
Apart from her Hollywood career, the Harvard-educated, Hebrew-speaking actress has also worked in Israeli film.
