What’s Ivan Reitman doing with Natalie Portman?



Directing her next film, of course!

According to Variety, producer and director Ivan Reitman will direct Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher in a romantic comedy currently called “Friends With Benefits.” 

Production begins in May and release is set for next January, which already tells us about low expectations for the film. What good movie has ever been released at the end Oscar season?

The last film Reitman directed was “My Super Ex-Girlfriend” in 2006, starring Uma Thurman.

Isn’t it just awesome when your son gets you nominated for an Oscar and it totally revives your career? Reitman is also set to direct “Ghostbusters 3.”

Portman’s upcoming slate includes the adventure comedy “Your Highness,” Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” and Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor,” Variety reports.
