Natalie Portman is refining her French to prepare for a role with Johnny Depp's daughter Lily Rose.

It's been more than two decades since Natalie Portman last starred in a French film, but it shouldn't take her long to prepare for Planetarium. After all, she has been living in Paris since last year after moving there with French hubby, choreographer Benjamin Millepied.

Natalie Portman will star with Lily Rose Depp in Planetarium, which is a 1930's set drama by French director Rebecca Zlotowski, according to Variety.

The last time Natalie Portman starred in a film by a French director was 1994s Leon, which was directed by Luc Besson.

Planetarium chronicles the story of "two sisters believed to possess the supernatural ability to connect with ghosts."

Natalie Portman will appear at the Cannes Film Festival opening on the French riviera Wednesday, with her directorial debut of A Tale of Love and Darkness.

Natalie Portman, who was born in Israel, won a best actress Golden Globe and an Academy Award for Best Actress for 2010's Black Swan, which is where she met Millepied.

The couple were married in 2012 and moved to Paris last November, after Millepied landed a coveted gig with the Paris Opera Ballet.
