Natalie Portman Puts Halt on Feminist Ginsburg Film Until Female Director is Found

Feminist icon and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg revealed recently that Natalie Portman, who is in negotiations to play her in an upcoming biopic, has put a halt on production until a female director is attached to the film.

The film, titled On the Basis of Sex, will follow Ginsburg’s life as she fights for equality in her career.

“Natalie Portman came to talk to me about [the film landing a female director], and we had a very good conversation,” Ginsburg said during an American Constitution Society convention panel Saturday, via MSNBC.

“And one thing, interesting, that she insisted on, it held up the project for a while,” she continued. “She said, ‘I want the director to be a woman. There are not enough women in this industry. There are many talented out there.’ And now they do have a woman director.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marielle Heller (Diary of a Teenage Girl), is now in talks to helm the film, and Daniel Stiepleman will write the screenplay
