Natalie Portman and Eric Bana are set to star in The Other Boleyn Girl for Columbia Pictures and director Justin Chadwick.

The historical drama is based on a novel by Philippa Gregory in a story that revolves around the ferociously ambitious Boleyn sisters, Mary and Anne (Portman), who are rivals for the bed and heart of 16th century English King Henry VIII (Bana).

The screenplay was adapted by Peter Morgan and shooting is set to begin in late September in Europe.
