Natalie Port­man in talks for Bronco Belle

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Natalie Port­man is in talks to star in 'Bronco Belle'. The 'Jackie' ac­tress is in early ne­go­ti­a­tions to play an as­pir­ing bull rider in the up­com­ing movie, which will be directed by Anna Rose Holmer, Dead­line re­ports. Khur­ram Longi has writ­ten the script about a wait­ress who dreams of join­ing the rodeo, while An­drew Lazar will pro­duce. Mean­while, Natalie, 35, re­cently claimed that women are still be­ing ob­jec­ti­fied in movies rather than be­ing por­trayed as "com­plex" in­di­vid­u­als. Port­man thinks the movie busi­ness still has a long way to go in terms of the parts on of­fer for ac­tresses in main­stream movies, just like many other in­dus­tries still need to of­fer more to women. She said: "We're hav­ing a prob­lem with fe­male lead­er­ship - in busi­ness, in gov­ern­ment, in sto­ry­telling. I think it has to do with be­ing a boss. We're still hav­ing a prob­lem, first with women in that po­si­tion, and sec­ond there are so many ob­sta­cles in their way. Re­fer­ring specif­i­cally to the prob­lems in Hol­ly­wood, she con­tin­ued: "We are so of­ten put in roles as ob­jects of de­sire, with a male view, as op­posed to sub­jects of de­sire with com­plex weak­nesses, and mo­ments of strength and fo­cus - and you can be all of those things."
