Natalie Portman has signed on to star alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire in the love-triangle drama Brothers. Based on a 2004 Danish-language film, the story centers on a man (Maguire) who is sent to fight in Afghanistan while his black-sheep brother (Gyllenhaal) cares for his wife (Portman). David Benioff, husband of Amanda Peet, is penning the remake. Portman will appear in the upcoming films Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, The Other Boleyn Girl, and My Blueberry Nights.

This sounds interesting.

I’ve seen the original and it was really good! It stars the awesome Connie Nielsen so that’s a bonus. I’m afraid the remake skews a little too young w/ the casting choices, but at least all 3 can act. And I’ve been waiting for someone to cast Maguire/Gyllenhall as brothers in a movie for awhile now.

I’m also not sure I can buy Natalie Portman as anyone’s wife! I wonder if they’ll keep the kids in the remake? Hmm…

Go see the original! Or you know…rent. 🙂 (I saw it late one night about 4 months ago on IFC or Sundance or one of those indy type movie channels.)
