She has replaced Rooney Mara in the project that also stars Jude Law, reported Variety. Portman will play the role of Celeste in the film, to be directed by Brady Corbet.

The next instalment of Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible franchise has been titled Fallout. The title was revealed by Cruise, who made his debut on Instagram, sharing a picture of a clapper board with the film’s name written on it. “Get ready,” he captioned it. 

Katherine Heigl said working on her hit 27 Dresses felt like a “college” experience to her. The 39-year-old actress reminisced about her days working in the Anne Fletcher-directed film, which also starred James Marsden and Malin Akerman. “We started filming in Rhode Island, and whenever you shoot on location, you tend to bond so quickly with your cast. We’d only have each other to go to dinner with and eat lunch with. You become this super close-knit group, 
and I was working with some of the greatest,” Heigl said, according to FemaleFirst.
