Way, way back in 2007, it was reported that Portman would direct and star in adaptation of Israeli writer, novelist, journalist, and professor Amos Oz's memoir, "A Tale Of Love And Darkness" and then nobody seemed to talk about it ever again. But it seems it's coming back to life. According to Israel Hayom (via the Natalie Portman fansite) Portman will head to Israel in September to start scouting locations after the script me with the approval of Oz. Portman apparently co-wrote it with two unnamed screenwriters, Oz signed off and now things seem to be moving forward.
