Word has come that Natalie Portman is playing a pop star, singing original songs by Sia, in a film premiering at the Venice Film Festival this year.
Von Lux follows Portman’s character as she survives a shooting and goes on to become an international sensation over the next 15 years. She’s joined in the cast by Jude Law, Jennifer Ehle and Stacy Martin.
It’s directed by Brady Corbet, who got his start as an actor before directing 2015’s The Childhood of A Leader, which won awards in Venice’s Horizons sidebar.
It does not yet have a theatrical distributor.
