Set in the New York ballet world, the 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.

Ryder, 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.
