Black Swan is written and directed by Darren Aronofsky (Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler), and focuses on the intense rivalry between two ballerinas (Kunis and Portman). Here is the basic rundown, as dictated by Kunis to Collider.com:
Natalie Portman and I play rival ballerinas and her character gets the lead in “Swan Lake.” My character appears and is everything that she wants to be in life. Her character is very professional, very strict and very neurotic. And, my character is very loose. The talent that my character has in ballet comes naturally to her. She’s not as technically as good as Natalie’s character, but she has more passion naturally, and that’s what Natalie’s character lacks, and so it’s a battle. It’s a yin and yang. Ultimately, it’s a story of Natalie’s character going through a downward spiral, mentally, through “Swan Lake.”
Production will wrap in February 2010.
