NATALIE PORTMAN VS. THE GHOST BALLERINA

Wrestler director Darren Aronofsky’s next project, Black Swan, is inching closer to production now that Natalie Portman is attached as the lead.  Also?  The plot sounds awesome:

“Swan” centers on a veteran ballerina (Portman) who finds herself locked in a competitive situation with a rival dancer, with the stakes and twists increasing as the dancers approach a big performance. But it’s unclear whether the rival is a supernatural apparition or if the protagonist is simply having delusions.  [THR]

You know, just your basic feuding-ballerina-where-one-of-the-ballerinas-maybe-isn’t-real story.  Ho hum, where’s the twist?  They should change the lead to a male ballerina, or as we say in the business, a ballerino.  And I don’t mean to brag, but I was practically born in this leotard.
