Natalie Portman to star in ‘Brothers’

Actress joins Gyllenhaal, Maguire in drama

Natalie Portman has signed on to star alongside Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal in Jim Sheridan’s love-triangle drama “Brothers” for Relativity Media.

Based on Susanne Bier’s 2004 Danish-language film, story centers on a man (Maguire) who is sent to fight in Afghanistan while his black-sheep brother (Gyllenhaal) cares for his wife (Portman) and child.

Connie Nielsen (“Gladiator”) played the wife in Bier’s version, speaking in her native Danish.

David Benioff (“The Kite Runner”) is penning the remake. Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh is producing alongside Michael De Luca and Joni Sighvatsson, with shooting scheduled to begin in early November.

Portman will star in the upcoming films “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium,” “The Other Boleyn Girl” and “My Blueberry Nights.”
