Natalie Portman is “Superbad” in New Script

Movie News

Natalie Portman’s latest film, “Black Swan,” made headlines once we all found out her character gets some sexy lady-on-lady time with Mila Kunis. Now, she is shopping a raunchy comedy she co-wrote with Laura Moses that is dubbed the female version of “Superbad” by studios.

So, that’s what they teach you at Harvard?

“BYO” (an abbreviation for Bring Your Own) revolves around Lucy, a writer working on a sex-tip book, and Alice, a concert promoter, who decide to throw a party where each girl brings a male friend to pass along to someone else. And in ritual bawdy comedic fashion, chaos will generally ensue.

The film has garnered attention from another top actress in the game--Anne Hathaway. Currently starring in “Love & Other Drugs” with Jake Gyllenhaal, Hathaway has expressed interest to play one of the leads alongside Portman, who will most likely star.

The script is currently being pitched to studios, some which have already passed, but reportedly could be independently financed if it moves forward.

Both Portman and Hathaway have grown-up in front of the camera making the all too shaky transition from child actress to the “Seriously, girl can act!” department. These two are polished, classy and intelligent women never besmirched by an ounce of scandal. Yet, how will America receive two of Hollywood’s great young actresses schlepping vulgar drunken acts best reserved for all of our darkest hours of college?

“Sex and the City” was a pioneer for depicting strong independent women’s sex lives and zany relationships, empowering a generation of twenty-somethings to move to the big city and take it by storm, one Cosmo and Jimmy Choo at a time.

Can this film do the same? Do you think audiences will buy into the hype of these two pulling off Jonah Hill and Michael Cera antics?
