Natalie Portman's been taking it easy since giving birth to baby Aleph last June, but it seems like her maternity leave is over with a vengeance.
Her name's been popping up all over recently, from the rumblings over who will direct "Thor 2" to directing a doc herself based on Jonathan Safran Foer's book about his switch to veganism, "Eating Animals."
Now the buzz about town is that Lana and Andy Wachowski want to snag their "V for Vendetta" star for their next movie, "Jupiter Ascending." The siblings began filming the adaptation of the massive (as in length) award-winning book "Cloud Atlas" in September and just wrapped principal photography on the film. It's tentatively slated for an October 2012 release, and according to 24 Frames, that's about when they'd like to start shooting "Jupiter."
Although "24 Frames" brings up "whether Portman will be able to regain the heat she had a year ago" on the heels of her Oscar win, it's unlikely that Hollywood won't eagerly welcome this little "Black Swan" back to the nest. Plus, it's great to see the Wachowskis back in their super cool sci-fi groove.
