Taika Waititi and Natalie Portman recently worked together on “Thor: Love and Thunder” released in theaters on July 8, 2022. In a recent interview, Waititi stated that he had asked Portman if she'd like to join his upcoming "Star Wars" production — totally forgetting Portman played Padmé Amidala throughout the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy.
"Have you ever wanted to be in a 'Star Wars' movie?" Waititi recalled asking Portman, to which she simply replied, "I've been in ‘Star Wars’ movies." "I forgot about those ones," Waititi admitted with a laugh.
Although, even the famed director himself has cast doubt on whether or not his jaunt in a galaxy far, far away will come to pass at all. As he explained "I've got to see how that goes because once I submit it, that might determine when it gets made or if it gets made."
