Natalie Portman to play twins in new biopic

OHMYGOSSIP — Natalie Portman is in talks to direct and star in a new biopic about identical twin sisters Esther and Pauline Friedman.
The Oscar-winning actress is close to agreeing a deal to take control of the project which would see her portray both sisters in the movie.
Esther and Pauline – who were nicknamed Eppie and Popo – were born in Iowa in 1918 and were very close as they grew up, and went on to work together at Morningside College’s school newspaper even shared a joint marriage ceremony on their 21st birthday.
However, their relationship soured when Esther – who went on to be known as Eppie Lederer – accepted a position as the Ann Landers advice columnist at the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper leading Pauline to start her own column in 1956 entitled Dear Abby – written under the pen name Abigail Van Buren.
That column was syndicated to over 1,200 newspapers and sparked a feud between the two siblings which lasted decades.
After Esther died in 2002 their daughters kept the feud going.
Portman is to direct the film from a script by The Affair’s Katie Robbins.
The 37-year-old actress will next be seen in musical drama ‘Vox Lux’ and then ‘The Death and Life of John F. Donovan’ with Kit Harington.
