The Oscar-winning actress will simultaneously play the roles of both twin sisters — dueling advice columnists Esther and Pauline Friedman — who became embroiled in a bitter professional rivalry and were estranged for a period of time after Pauline began a similar, column titled “Dear Abby”, fashioned after Esther’s column “Ask Ann Landers”.

The script is to be penned by Katie Robbins, who currently serves as a producer on Showtime’s “The Affair”, with Peter Saraf and Dani Melia of Big Beach on board to produce (via The Hollywood Reporter).


The film will also mark Portman’s third turn behind the camera in the director’s chair, following her 2015 Israeli drama debut “A Tale of Love and Darkness”, and “New York, I Love You” (segment “Natalie Portman”) and “Eve” (Short) in 2008. AB
