Natalie Portman and co-writer/college friend Laura Moses are shopping a script they penned together around town. The LA Times reports that BYO [Bring Your Own] follows two twentysomething women who are getting sick of the usual dating game. So they decide to throw a wild party to which each female attendee brings an eligible bachelor. Wackiness, one would assume, ensues. The Times quotes executives as describing it as the female equivalent of Superbad.
Portman will be wearing her producer’s hat for this one, but like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies before it [at least until she dropped out of that], she’s planning to star. Plus she apparently has Anne Hathaway considering taking the other main role. Given the talent attached, you’d expect this one to be snapped up quickly, though several studios have apparently already passed. But should she get spurned by the big leagues, it’s entirely possible Portman could drum up some financing independently.
