Winona Ryder Joins "Black Swan" Cast for Director Darren Aronofsky 


I'm getting really excited about this supernatural project called "Black Swan." First, I respect Darren Aronofsky as a director. He made Mickey Rourke ("The Wrestler") cool again!

Second, the paranormal angle is intriguing. The film is set in the world of New York City ballet about a ballerina (Natalie Portman) who's competing with a rival dancer. But is the rival a ghost or is Portman's character just having a mental breakdown? Mila Kunis is set to star as Lilly, the mysterious rival dancer.

Now, Winona Ryder is joining the cast as a rival dancer. Barbara Hershey and Vincent Cassel complete the cast.

Fox Searchlight is very close into co-financing and distributing the film which was written by Mark Heyman based on an original screenplay by Andres Heinz.

Production is set to start in New York before the end of the year, and the budget is reported to be between $10 million - $12 million.
