Portman eyes Oz autobiography

Hollywood actress Natalie Portman reportedly is interested in starring in a film version of Amos Oz’s autobiography. Portman visited Israel over the weekend to meet with the celebrated author about his book “A Tale of Love and Darkness.” According to the reports, Portman is in talks to play Oz’s mother, who committed suicide when the writer was 12. A spokesman for Jerusalem Capital Studios, which is linked to the prospective production, confirmed that Portman and Oz had met, but said a film deal has not yet been clinched.
