Natalie Portman's production company, Handsome Charlie Films, is looking for someone to direct a script about two girls who hit the road to bring their best friend a bag of pot.
"Best Buds" will star Portman as a one of the women in a race against the clock to get some pot to their friend before her wedding, according to Pajiba.
Since bursting on the scene as a 13-year-old assassin's protege in "The Professional," Portman has made a career of mixing up her choices, going from indie comedies to big budget sci-fi to all manner of roles. In an effort to ensure she continues to find smaller roles that suit her on a more personal level, she launched her own production company.

In January, they unveiled "Hesher," starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a stoner-drifter-anarchist who befriends a young boy struggling with the death of his mother, with Portman as the supermarket checkout girl who falls in with them. Despite an uneven ending, Gordon-Levitt gave another great performance in a very funny, thoughtful film.
