Mila Kunis is in discussions to star as Natalie Portman's nemesis in Darren Aronofsky's supernatural drama Black Swan, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The picture centers on a talented ballerina (Portman) in the New York City Ballet who is tormented by a rival who might or might not be a figment of the dancer's imagination.

Kunis will play the rival, Lilly, with strange occurrences between the two increasing as they prepare for a big performance.

Swan is set to begin shooting in the fall in New York. Aronofksy's Protozoa Pictures is producing with Mike Medavoy's Phoenix Pictures. The project does not yet have distribution, but Fox Searchlight, which distributed Aronofsky's The Wrestler, could come on board as it moves into production.
