Natalie Portman will shortly visit Israel to scout locations for a new film based on Amos Oz's autobiographical novel "A Tale of Love and Darkness".
Portman makes her feature directorial debut on the film in which she'll also star.
The book describes Oz's childhood and young adulthood in Mandatory Palestine, along with the state's early years.
Portman recently submitted the screenplay to Oz who reportedly gave her his blessing. It is not yet known if the film will be in Hebrew or English.
