There's nothing like some ballerina shoes and creepy thrills to reinvigorate your career. Natalie Portman stars in one little drama crafted by filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, a film most of us haven't even seen yet, and now she's one of Hollywood's most in-demand actors. Earlier this month, just one week after the premiere of 'Black Swan' in Venice, Portman's name began circling Alfonso Cuaron's 'Gravity.'

Vying for the role Angelina Jolie refused twice, Portman's name was one of many, a list of possibilities ranging from the very sensible Rachel Weisz to the surprising 'Gossip Girl' Blake Lively, with Sandra Bullock being the latest rumored to be up for the role. But now Portman is in serious talks, so while the agreement is not yet concrete, her involvement is practically a sure thing -- setting the stage for what could be back-to-back Oscar nominations for the actress.
