Let me clarify… I want Natalie Portman to co-star in our movie Lucky & Rich.
Is this an impossible dream? I don’t think so, it’s easy to think too small and in some ways plan to fail or to only moderately succeed.
In the weekend I went to the cinema and I watched “Brothers” the latest Jim Sheridan flick. During the film I started seeing our character “Lucky” very much somewhere inside of Natalie. Yesterday I met with my acting coach and strangely one of the first things he said was… “I imagine Natalie Portman could play Lucky.”
In Hollywood the question is not would Natalie Portman agree to do it? Or is she right for the character? The real question is how on earth do I beat the Hollywood machine and get our script in her hands?
