Winona Ryder joins Black Swan

Vincent Cassel also in Darren Aronofsky's latest…

Darren Aronofsky has been gathering more cast for Black Swan, with Winona Ryder, Vincent Cassel and Barbara Hershey.

The plot finds Natalie Portman as Nina, an expert ballerina who finds herself locked into a rivalry with a fellow dancer named Lilly (Mila Kunis), who seems a lot like her.

Is Nina going crazy? Having visions? Or is it something else? (Cue dramatic music sting here).

Ryder will play Beth, a friend of Nina's and who is a near the end of her career, while Cassel is Yevna, the handsome-yet-creepy new director of the stage production that all three dancers are appearing in.

And finally, there's Hershey, who will play Nina's mother.

The film looks to be grabbing some support itself - Fox Searchlight is said to be in talks to pick it up for distribution, and Aronofsky will kick off shooting in a few weeks.
