So, here is a list of all the upcoming movies and TV shows of Natalie Portman!

1. Lady in the Lake (2024)

Based on Laura Lippman’s 2019 novel of the same name, ‘Lady in the Lake’ is a miniseries set in 1960s Baltimore. The show revolves around an investigative journalist named Maddie Schwartz, who reinvents her life as a news reporter while working on an unsolved murder. Meanwhile, she clashes with Cleo Sherwood, a woman committed to the progression of Baltimore’s Black community. Portman steps into the shoes of Maddie Schwartz, while Moses Ingram (‘The Queen’s Gambit’ and ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’) plays Cleo Sherwood.

The show also stars Y’lan Noel (‘The First Purge’ and ‘A Lot of Nothing’), Mikey Madison (‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’), Brett Gelman (‘Fleabag’ and ‘Stranger Things’), Noah Jupe (‘A Quiet Place’ and ‘Ford v Ferrari’), Mike Epps (‘The Upshaws’), Byron Bowers (‘Concrete Cowboy’), and Josiah Cross (‘King Richard’). The rest of the cast includes Pruitt Taylor Vince, Ronnie Gene Blevins, David Corenswet, Angela Robinson, Katherine Winter, Samir Royal, and Dylan Arnold. The series is penned and directed by Alma Har’el, known for directing ‘Honey Boy’ and an episode of the FXX show ‘Dave.’ Portman also serves as an executive producer of the project which is currently in the post-production stage. The series is set to premiere on Apple TV+ in 2024. However, the release date has not been revealed yet.

2. Fountain of Youth (TBA)

Directed by Guy Ritchie, ‘Fountain of Youth’ will follow two siblings, played by Portman and John Krasinski, as they embark on an adventurous quest to find the legendary Fountain of Youth that can grant them immortality. The story has been written by James Vanderbilt. The cast also includes Eiza González, Domhnall Gleeson, Carmen Ejogo, Arian Moayed, and Laz Alonso. Sounds pretty much like ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’ stuff but since Guy Ritchie is helming it, we can expect to be a lot more grounded. ‘Fountain of Youth’ is currently in the pre-production stage and we are yet to get a release date.

3. Foxy Trotter (TBA)

Portman is also producing and lending her voice in an animated film named ‘Foxy Trotter.’ The movie follows Foxy, a motorcycle-riding rock-and-roll photographer in the early 1970s, who is on a mission to click the perfect rock photo. Portman is voicing Ronnie, Foxy’s best friend. The rest of the cast has not been unveiled yet. The comedy film is helmed by Chris Prynoski, who previously directed the 2016 animated film ‘Nerdland,’ featuring the voices of Paul Rudd, Patton Oswalt, Hannibal Buress, Kate Micucci, and Riki Lindhome. The script is penned by Jessica Hundley, Mike Pinkney, Michael Reich, and Jess Rotter. The project was first announced in 2017. However, it is still reported to be in the pre-production stage with no release date attached.
