Winona Ryder is in talks to co-star in Darren Aronofsky's supernatural thriller "Black Swan" opposite Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.
Fox Searchlight is in talks to co-finance the film and distribute domestically. Cross Creek Pictures is already on board to co-finance. Cross Creek's Brian Oliver is producing alongside Scott Franklin of Protozoa. Arnold Messer and Mike Medavoy of Phoenix Pictures are also producing.
Set in the ballet world of New York City, story centers on a veteran dancer (Portman) and a rival (Kunis) who are tangled in a manipulative relationship, but it's unclear whether the rival is real or a figment of the ballet dancer's imagination. Ryder will play a fellow dancer.
Actress, whose career had been dormant for nearly a decade, has begun to work again in high-profile projects. This summer, she portrayed Spock's mother in the "Star Trek" reboot. She will next be seen in Rebecca Miller's "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee."Ryder is currently shooting "When Love is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story," a Hallmark Hall of Fame Presentation for CBS. She is repped by the Gersh Agency.
This article here from Slashfilm also adds that Vincent Cassel and Barbara Hershey are in as well, which only makes the project sound better...
