LOS ANGELES, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Natalie Portman has signed on to star in "Brothers," a Hollywood remake of Susanne Bier's 2004 Danish-language film "Brodre," Variety.com has said.

Set to begin shooting next month, the film will be directed by Jim Sheridan.

Portman will soon be seen in the films "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium," "The Other Boleyn Girl" and "My Blueberry Nights."
