Natalie Portman - Natalie Portman To Go In The Garden Of Beasts?

Natalie Portman is being lined up to star in drama 'In the Garden of Beasts'.

The 'Black Swan' actress and Oscar-winning director Michel Hazanavicius, who helmed successful silent movie 'The Artist' last year, are both in talks about working on the forthcoming film, which will feature Tom Hanks.

The project - an adaptation of Erik Larson's 2011 non-fiction novel of the same name - tells the story of William Dodd (Hanks), the American Ambassador to Germany from 1933-1937, and how he initially thought reports of anti-semitism were exaggerated while he lived in Berlin during The Early Years of the Nazi government.

But he soon became increasingly aware about the party's shocking agenda, and after attempting to take action against the regime he resigned in December 1937 and moved back to the US, where he tried to raise awareness about the terrible goings on in Germany.

According to Deadline, Tom and his producing partner Gary Goetzman are thought to be keen on attaching Natalie to the role of Martha, William's adult daughter who engages in a number of liaisons with a number of Nazi officials including head of the Gestapo - the official secret police of Nazi Germany - Rudolf Diels.
