Natalie Portman and Lily Rose Depp have signed on for the period ghost drama “Planetarium”.
The film, which is directed by Rebecca Zlotowski, is set in the 1930’s and follows Portman and Rose Depp as sisters who, “…are believed to possess the supernatural ability to connect with ghosts. They cross paths with a visionary French producer while performing in Paris.”
According to the site:
The political context of “Planetarium” will have a modern resonance with the current crisis and rise of extremism in Europe. The character of the producer is freely inspired by Jewish producer Bernard Natan, one of the biggest French film industry figures of the ’20s and ’30s, who eventually died in Auschwitz.
~The film is expected to be released in May, 2016.
