Natalie Portman Replaces Reese Witherspoon in 'Pale Blue Dot'

Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon Natalie Portman Replaces Reese Witherspoon in 'Pale Blue Dot'
Kristine Garrett | 13 January, 2018, 01:03

Natalie Portman is known for playing the role of Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, and was nominated for an Academy Award for the 2004 film Closer.

Oscar victor NATALIE PORTMAN is now in talks to take over the role previously held by Reese Witherspoon in Noah Hawley's feature debut PALE BLUE DOT, the Tracking Board has confirmed. Should the deal be finalised, she'll play a successful astronaut who returns home - presumably to fantastic fanfare - only to experience a freaky change in personality; perhaps the result of a very real phenomenon that occurs after a person is stuck in space for long periods of time. He has Buried Bodies (based on the real life Lake Pleasant Bodies case), a Doctor Doom solo movie, and an adaptation of his own novel Before the Fall lined up as potential directing gigs, but Pale Blue Dot is now slated to be his feature directorial debut. Indeed, the fact that Fargo will not return for a fourth season until 2019 is in part so that Hawley has time to make the film (scheduling sacrifices seem to be a common theme with the film, for better or worse).

"Pale Blue Dot" will be helmed by Noah Hawley, who has previously helmed movies such as "Fargo and 'Legion".

However, Reese withdrew from Pale Blue Dot's cast in November (17) so she would be available to shoot another season of her hit miniseries Big Little Lies, which has since been confirmed to start production this spring (18). Interestingly, the film's notion of grappling with sanity and reality is territory that's also familiar for Portman, who won an Oscar for portraying a character who does that exact thing in Black Swan.

The drama was once meant to be a starring vehicle for Reese Witherspoon, but she is instead producing along with Bruna Papandrea.
