Natalie Portman is set to star in a new movie directed by Canadian filmmaker Ivan Reitman. Friends with Benefits is due for release in January 2011.

According to Variety, the film will centre on the idea that men and women easily become sexually involved, but have a hard time establishing an emotional bond.

The romantic comedy co-stars Ashton Kutcher (That 70’s Show, Guess Who) and starts filming in May. Reitman’s last movie was 2006’s My Super Ex-Girlfriend starring Uma Thurman. It tanked with critics and at the box office.

But let’s not forget he’s also directed dozens of classics, including the two Ghost Busters movies. Reitman recently produced his son’s Oscar-nominated movie Up in the Air. He’s also directing the new Ghost Busters film being released next year.
