Jerusalem (AFP) – Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman was back in her native city of Jerusalem on Thursday shooting for her directorial debut, to the annoyance of the local ultra-Orthodox Jewish community.

The Hollywood actress, who was born in Jerusalem, is directing a film adaptation of “A Tale of Love and Darkness,” an award-winning 2002 novel by Israel’s best known writer, Amos Oz.

Translated from Hebrew into 28 languages, the story is a heart-wrenching memoir of Oz’s childhood in Jerusalem in the 1940s and 1950s, before and after the creation of the Jewish state.

In the film, Portman, 32, plays the role of his mother, who committed suicide when he was 12 years old.

The shoot, which has seen several of the narrow alleyways of the Nahlaot neighbourhood transformed into a scene from Mandate Palestine, has incurred the wrath of some ultra-Orthodox locals.

Earlier this week, Hebrew graffiti deriding the “foreign invasion” was sprayed on the set, and Israel’s Channel 10 news said residents had complained to the mayor’s office that shooting was taking place near synagogues and asking that those involved be appropriately dressed.

As the shooting took place on an unseasonably hot February morning, Portman could be seen wearing a short-sleeved 1940s-style dress, but there was no sign of any protesters, an AFP correspondent said.

Born June 9, 1981 to an Israeli doctor and his American artist wife, Portman remains close to her Israeli roots.

Portman has taken on tough roles ever since her big-screen debut at the age of 11, when she starred in “The Professional,” the tale of a hitman who becomes her character’s mentor.

In 2011, she won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for her role in “Black Swan.”

After her untimely death in ‘Revenge of the Sith’, Natalie Portman really wishes she could be a part of ‘Star Wars VII’.

Ever since ‘Star Wars VII’ was first announced, we’ve been eagerly waiting to find out exactly which of our favourite galactic heroes will return. And while Han, Luke and Leia are thought to be in the bag, there are still plenty of ‘Star Wars’ favourites left unaccounted for. But while Lando Calrissian and even Boba Fett stand a chance of making a comeback, could we see Natalie Portman back in the galaxy far, far away? She certainly seems keen, but there’s the small matter of her death…

Ever since ‘Star Wars VII’ was first announced, we’ve been eagerly waiting to find out exactly which of our favourite galactic heroes will return. And while Han, Luke and Leia are thought to be in the bag, there are still plenty of ‘Star Wars’ favourites left unaccounted for. But while Lando Calrissian and even Boba Fett stand a chance of making a comeback, could we see Natalie Portman back in the galaxy far, far away? She certainly seems keen, but there’s the small matter of her death…

But will Disney return to the prequel era?

I can’t help thinking it’s probably something they want to avoid. At least for the time being. With the focus firmly set on ‘Episode VII’, it seems that the main aim is to return to the roots of the saga. Even ‘Star Wars Rebels’ is seeking to recapture some of the magic of the original trilogy.

Will we see Natalie Portman back in a ‘Star Wars’ movie? I certainly wouldn’t count on it. But perhaps she stands more of a chance than Hayden Christensen.

Do you think Natalie Portman will ever re-appear in a ‘Star Wars’ movie? Could she star in her own spin-off? Let us know what you think in the comments below…

Thor actress Natalie Portman has revealed a secret about herself. The gorgeous looking star has said that she loves working with Australian actors and she would want to be paired with them on screen in her movies. Till now she has worked with two Australian artists, Joel Edgerton (Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones) and Eric Bana (The Other Boleyn Girl).

The 32-year-old actress quoted, “I`ve worked so much in Australia, a lot, so I know, I just love them. This is a generalisation but in my experience working with Australian actors is just that they`re really open, warm, friendly and fun, don`t take things too seriously and are really good at what they do.” Natalie last appeared in Thor: The Dark World.

If it looked like Chris Hemsworth wasn’t just acting during his passionate kiss at the end of the credits on “Thor: The Dark World” – it’s because he wasn’t.

Co-star Natalie Portman revealed to the Daily News that due to a scheduling conflict she couldn’t reprise her role as Thor’s mortal girlfriend in time to film the scene. So a special stunt double filled in – Hemsworth’s real-life wife, “Fast & Furious 6″ actress Elsa Pataky.

“It was for reshoots (after the film was finished) and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn’t get there because I was working on my own film,” Portman told the News.

“And so they put his wife in my wig and costume, that’s why it was so passionate.”

The Spanish-born Pataky, who has been married to Hemsworth since 2010 and is now pregnant with their second child, had been traveling with her demi-God and their daughter India at the time anyway.

With the assistance of a few trick camera angles, moviegoers were none the wiser.

“It was such a perfect solution, wasn’t it,” said Portman.

Natalie Portman sent the Marvel fan world into a frenzy on Thursday when a new interview with Sci-Fi Now revealed some exciting things about a few female superheroes. In the past, Marvel Studios has been criticized for focusing primarily on their male characters.
It looks like that’s all about to change. In the U.K. interview, the Thor star hinted that there were some female-centric superhero movies to come.

She said, “There are definitely many strong women, but it will be exciting when there is a central female character which I think is coming — I have heard is coming. And, of course, also a central non-white character will also be exciting. Title characters.”
Portman isn’t the only one who knows that something is stirring over at Marvel Studios. One of their producers, Louis D’Esposito, alluded to the fact that comic book fans are ready for more.

He said at an Iron Man 3 Blu-Ray/DVD launch event to ComingSoon.net, “There’s obviously a drumbeat that is banging louder and louder that we want a female lead superhero… [W]e have strong female characters in our films from Black Widow to Pepper Potts to Peggy Carter and you never know. Maybe there’s an offshoot film with one of them. Or Captain Marvel, you know?”
Portman will be continuing with her role in Marvel’s Thor franchise. She plays Jane Foster, an astrophysicist Thor falls in love with. The next installment, Thor: The Dark World, is scheduled to be released on Nov. 8.
Even with hints of something coming from the superhero studio, it’s clear the fans are ready for a female character to be front and center on the silver screen.

JERUSALEM — Israeli film officials say Israeli-American actress Natalie Portman will direct her first feature film, based on an autobiographical novel by celebrated Israeli writer Amos Oz.

Yoram Honig of the Jerusalem Film Fund and a publicist for the film said recently that Portman wrote the screenplay and also will star in the movie as Oz’s troubled mother.

They say Portman is to arrive in Israel in October to cast local actors. The movie will be filmed in Jerusalem in early 2014.

It’s not decided if the film will be shot in Hebrew or English. Honig’s fund is providing $400,000.

The movie is based on Oz’s 2002 autobiography, “A Tale of Love and Darkness,” about his youth during Israel’s founding years.

The publicist spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the project.
