Cassel, Ryder and Hershey join Portman and Kunis in ‘Black Swan’

/Film reports that Vincent Cassel, Winona Ryder and Barbara Hershey are joining Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis to star in the Darren Aronofsky supernatural flick Black Swan, most probably for Fox Searchlight.

The film will be Aronofsky’s fifth feature film following the indie successes of Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain and his most recent and most prominent film The Wrestler.


The film is a supernatural drama is set in the world of New York City ballet. Natalie Portman stars as Nina, a veteran ballerina who finds herself locked in to a competitive showdown with a rival dancer named Lilly, played by Mila Kunis, “with the stakes and twists increasing as the dancers approach a big performance.” Nina is not sure whether her rival is a supernatural apparition or if she is having delusions. Apparently the script also includes a sequence where the two main characters have “ecstasy-induced hungry aggressive angry sex.”

No release date has been confirmed for the film.
