The latest celebrity news and gossip is that 29-year-old Natalie Portman may star in the upcoming prequel to Ridley Scott's Alien. If the rumors pan out, then Portman would play a Colonial Marine general in the movie. The other name being talked about for the role is Noomi Rapace, Swedish actress and star of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Portman, known also for being a vegan and for her celebrity fashion style, stars in the upcoming movie Black Swan, which opens December 1. In that movie Portman plays a ballet dancer. The original Alien was considered a horror-suspense movie, and the new prequel is likely to return to that style rather than the action movie style of the sequel, Aliens.
