Natalie Portman to Direct and Star in Movie on Dear Abby and Ann Landers Twins

Dear Abby,Natalie Portman is an Oscar-winning actress who plans to direct a movie about dueling advice columnists who happen to be twin sisters. She also plans to play both Esther and Pauline Friedman, aka the writers of “Ask Ann Landers” and “Dear Abby.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The Affair” producer Katie Robbins is writing the script about the two sisters who had a bitter professional rivalry that also affected their personal lives. No word yet on filming, the rest of the cast, or a release date. Not even sure what the title will be.

Portman has experience directing a feature film — and directing herself — with the 2015 drama “A Tale of Love and Darkness.” But she could probably use some advice on directing herself in two roles as twin sisters. She wouldn’t be the first star to play twins — far from it — but it’s still a lot to take on, and we can’t wait to see the juicy results on screen.
In the meantime, Natalie Portman is working on the astronaut love triangle drama “Pale Blue Dot.”Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook.
