Actress Natalie Portman has been roped in to star as a bull rider in upcoming film “Bronco Belle”…..reports Asian Lite News

Directed by Anna Rose Holmer, the movie will talk about female empowerment.

“Bronco Belle” tells the story of Raylene Jackson (Portman), a “stubborn but vulnerable and determined American woman” with dreams of champion bull riding. She then struggles to do her best to be taken seriously in the male-dominated sport and she won’t let any chauvinists let herself down.

This is not the first time when Portman would be working with Holmer.

She earlier starred in a Holmer-directed music video for James Blake’s song “My willing heart”. The black-and-white video features Portman showing off her pregnant figure underwater.
