Natalie Portman is Booksmart

Natalie Portman is not only book smart off-camera (she went to Harvard), Variety reports she’ll be taking it to a whole new level.

The 28-year-old actress will be producing a comedy called Booksmart, which will revolve around two overachieving high school seniors who realize the only thing they haven’t accomplished is having boyfriends — and each resolves to find one by prom.

“Sarah and Emily create funny, smart, unselfconsciously strong female characters,” Natalie has sad. “When I read Booksmart, it was as though the script we always talk about wanting to find for our company suddenly materialized.”
