According to The Los Angeles Times, the actress has recently been shopping a raunchy comedy to studios that she co-wrote with her college friend Laura Moses. Executives who’ve read the script describe it as a female-themed Superbad.
Per the LAT: The project, called BYO (for Bring Your Own), concerns two very different twentysomething women who, after finding themselves unlucky in love, decide to throw a party to which each female attendee brings an eligible bachelor.
Portman would star and produce while two studio execs who’ve read the script told the newspaper that Anne Hathaway has expressed interest in the second lead role.
The project has been passed on by several Hollywood studios, but the LAT says there’s hope yet.
