Natalie Portman: Directorial Debut with 'Tale of Love & Darkness'!

Natalie Portman is set to make her directorial debut in a film adaptation of the memoir “A Tale of Love and Darkness” by Israeli novelist Amos Oz, Reuters UK reports.

The 32-year-old Oscar winner is also set to star in and write the script.

“She read ‘A Tale of Love and Darkness’ and asked me for the rights to make a film adaptation around five or six years ago,” Amos said. “I agreed because of my high esteem for her work. She’s an excellent actor.” Natalie will portray Amos‘ mother in the film, who committed suicide when he was 12.

Filming is scheduled to begin in January 2014.
