Portman To Play An Aspiring Bull Rider

Natalie Portman is negotiating to star in and TriStar Pictures is in early talks to finance and distribute the drama “Bronco Belle”.

Portman would play a waitress and aspiring champion steer rider named Raylene Jackson. With the help of an ornery veteran mentor, she infiltrates the male-dominated rodeo circuit.

Overmatched by the beasts she has to ride, she pursues her dreams anyway – no matter the cost.

Khurram Longi penned the script, Andrew Lazar is producing and Anna Rose Holmer is in discussions to direct with filming to begin next year.
