Natalie Portman is strapping on her point shoes. Her scary point shoes.
The story will follow a New York City ballerina (Portman) whose main rival may be — cue musical sting here — a ghost. No word on when production will begin.
The project was fast-tracked after the success of Aronofsky’s 2008 movie “The Wrestler.”
Portman will co-star later this year in “Brothers,” a drama about one man’s struggles after his brother goes missing in Afghanistan.
