Indo Asian News Service

Los Angeles, March 29 (IANS) Actress Natalie Portman has been roped in to star as a bull rider in upcoming film "Bronco Belle".

Directed by Anna Rose Holmer, the movie will talk about female empowerment, reports aceshowbiz.com.

"Bronco Belle" tells the story of Raylene Jackson (Portman), a "stubborn but vulnerable and determined American woman" with dreams of champion bull riding. She then struggles to do her best to be taken seriously in the male-dominated sport and she won't let any chauvinists let herself down.

This is not the first time when Portman would be working with Holmer.

She earlier starred in a Holmer-directed music video for James Blake's song "My willing heart". The black-and-white video features Portman showing off her pregnant figure underwater.
