    Natalie Portman takes on Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The Academy Award winner is slated to take on the role of the first Jewish female Supreme Court Justice in an upcoming biopic.

    According to Deadline, Natalie Portman recently nabbed the starring role in On the Basis of Sex, a biopic about the life and career of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Marielle Heller, who recently received critical acclaim for her directorial debut Diary of a Teenage Girl, is reportedly in talks to direct the politically charged film, while Focus Films will reportedly finance. Robert W. Cort will produce while Ram Bergman will serve as executive producer. Filming for On the Basis of Sex is on track to begin by the end of the year.

    On the Basis of Sex, will center on the numerous obstacles that Ruth Bader Ginsburg faced as she fought for equal rights throughout her career. On August 10, 1993, Ginsburg took the oath of office as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States after a lengthy career of advocacy for the advancement of women’s rights. She was appointed by then-President Bill Clinton to replace retiring Justice Byron White, becoming the second female Supreme Court Justice—after Sandra Day O’Connoer—and the first Jewish female Supreme Court Justice. Known for her mostly liberal views, Ginsburg has made an indelible imprint on the Supreme Court over the years and will probably continue to do so into the near future. The actress portraying Ginsburg, Natalie Portman, is also a known liberal with a passion for fighting for equal rights.

    The script, which was written by Daniel Stiepleman, has already received some acclaim from Hollywood. Steiplman’s script made the 2014 Black List, which is a high honor bestowed upon promising new scripts. Essentially, it’s a list of the hottest projects in Hollywood that you haven’t heard of. No word yet on whom else will star in the film alongside Natalie Portman in On the Basis of Sex, but the film is likely to bring the award-winning actress much more clout, in addition to perhaps being a personally rewarding project.

    Portraying Ruth Bader Ginsburg will hardly be a task for the Black Swan star as she won’t have to go far to draw inspiration for the role. Both Portman and the Supreme Court Justice are intelligent females—both Ivy League alums—who are also Jewish. Neither woman has ever denied her beliefs, which will likely give the Oscar winner a good foundation to build upon for the role, not that the role won’t require any research or acting ability. Regardless, Portman is a skilled actor and should do just fine in her upcoming role, one that will undoubtedly earn more awards and recognition.

    Oh great another iconic personality to be butchered on film by another overwrought and overly calculated performance. Good luck to whoever is nominated with her in 2019 cuz you can be sure that the Portmaniacs are coming for them.

    I am glad this is finally official, but is this going to be about RBG’s whole life? Are we going to see Portman getting old on screen?

    No such thing as a makeup Oscar for a previous winner.

    She was on Jimmy Kimmel last night and explained the movie will be about one court case so I don’t think it’s a life-spanning biopic.

    Great casting choice! I can easily picture Portman as the Notorious RBG.

    Also, Ryan Gosling is playing Neil Armstrong in an upcoming biopic directed by Damien Chazelle. So another Class of 2016 nominee chasing future Oscarbait.

    I love overly calculated performances. I wouldn’t like Meryl otherwise.

    GASP!!! There is nothing overly calculated about Mary Louise Streep’s performances. You take that back this instant. Blasphemy wont be tolerated.

    Stoners still getting brave and acting like just because she’s gonna win an Oscar ala Jennifer Lawrence style, that somehow means she’s a great actress. Stay smoking that weed, babies.

    Stay snorting coke yourself Bee. Natalie Portman is a fine actress, a child star who got lucky. She was good in Jackie, and she will probably be good as RBG.

    Emma Stone is a modern screen legend. She EARNED this upcoming Oscar win. Get over it. 😉

    LOL. Yeah…lets not go overboard. Emma Stone has yet to play anyone other than Emma Stone. I am intrigued by what she does in “The Battle of Sexes”. Although i do agree that she has earned and deserves the Oscar (should she get it).
