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.
