Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky recently told MTV that casting Natalie in the film had been planned for a long time!

“I first talked with Natalie about this project at least 10 years ago,” Darren shared. “We were in Times Square and had a coffee at the old Howard Johnson. I had this idea of setting something in the ballet world. It was very loose. I didn’t have a script. And then I found out she was fascinated by ballet and wanted to play a dancer.”
