Natalie Portman trying to sell BYO
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Natalie Portman is reportedly trying to sell a “raunchy” comedy to different studio execs that she co-wrote with a college buddy. The film is entitled BYO (Bring Your Own) and involves two twenty something women who are unlucky in the love department. To fix their problem they decide to throw a party where each guest brings an eligible date. Studio execs have been liking the premise to the successful 2007 comedy SUPERBAD, but with females. Portman would star as one of the leads and produce and apparently Anne Hathaway has expressed interest in the other lead role.
Even though Natalie Portman has done some more risque roles in her career, including the upcoming feature films BLACK SWAN with Mila Kunis and NO STRINGS ATTACHED with Ashton Kutcher , she still has managed to keep her good girl image. She’s just this wholesome girl that everyone wants to be friends with, so I’m sure this film will get made and be a success and all the studio heads that turned her down with be kicking themselves.
