Aged 31, the winner of the Oscar for best actress in 2011 is being actively courted by several studios. According to the website, Portman is in line for the title role in Code Name Sasha, a Paramount project in which she would play a single mom with an extensive rap sheet dating back to her teen years. She is offered a way out of trouble if she collaborates with authorities on a weapon trafficking sting.
