JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israeli film officials say Israeli-American actress Natalie Portman will direct her first
feature film, based on an autobiographical novel by celebrated Israeli writer
Bing: 'A Tale of Love
Yoram Honig of the Jerusalem Film Fund and a publicist for the film said
Wednesday that Portman wrote the screenplay and will also star in the movie as
Oz's troubled mother.
They say Portman is to arrive in October in Israel to cast local actors. The
movie will be filmed in Jerusalem in early 2014.
It's not decided if the film will be shot in Hebrew or English. Honig's fund
is providing $400,000.
The film is based on Oz's 2002 autobiography, "A Tale of Love and Darkness,"
about his youth during Israel's founding years.
The publicist spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the project.
