Two Oscar winners enter but only one can be… Lady Macbeth!!!
The part looked like it was locked up by Natalie Portman back in May. But new reports are that the Black Swan star has been replaced by a seksi French Hen!
Ooh la la!
Marion is set to star alongside Michael Fassbender in the upcoming adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth. The film will be directed by Justin Kurzel and is scheduled to start production as soon as the end of this year!
Hey, it's okay, Nats. You would be too busy promoting your starring role in Thor: The Dark World to be in this dark tragedy anyway!
That's not to say we aren't TOTES excited to see this flick!
We just have our fingers and toes crossed that the legendary curse of the Scottish Play steers clear from the set!
Double, double toil and trouble! Fire burn, and cauldron bubble!
