Taika Waititi’s memory lapse toward Natalie Portman
The relationship between Natalie Portman and Taika Waititi started badly with “Thor: Love and Thunder”, he asked a bad question the actress about “Star Wars” …
The director Taika Waititi is back at the helm of the new adventures of the superhero with Thor: Love and Thunder. In this opus, the Asgardian played by Chris Hemsworth is in search of serenity after the events of Avengers: Endgame and the fight against Thanos. His plans are disrupted by Gorr (Christian Bale), an enemy who has vowed to eradicate all deities in the universe.
In this war, the God of Thunder can count on the help of the Guardians of the Galaxy but also of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and especially of his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), absent since Thor: The Dark World and now able to wield Mjölnir
Natalie Portman makes her comeback in this movie to be discovered on July 13, 2022, in theaters. A comeback that also allows finding Natalie Portman in theaters, which she had deserted since 2019 and My Life with John F. Donovan.
In the course of his collaboration with the Oscar-winning actress of Black Swan, Taika Waititi makes her understand that he does not master her filmography at his fingertips. The actor and director indeed make a rather surprising request to the former interpreter of Padme Amidala, as he told Rolling Stone:
“The actress asked me, ‘What are you going to do next?” And I said, “I’m trying to work on a Star Wars thing. Have you ever wanted to do a Star Wars movie?” She said, “I’ve been in Star Wars movies before.” I forgot about those.
Taika Waititi added about a secret project, which he’s still not sure he’ll be able to pull off:
I’m trying to write this Star Wars idea right now. I have to see how it goes because once I come up with it, that will determine if it can be done or not.
Taika Waititi should in any case make a proposal quite far from the prelogy of George Lucas…
