Natalie Portman has been offered several film roles

Natalie Portman is tipped to play a single mum living a life of crime in a new movie.

The Oscar-winning actress - mum to 16-month-old son Aleph - is currently considering the role in Code Name Sasha, according to The Wrap.

If the Black Swan star signs up she will play a girl who is asked to go undercover to bring down a gun-running organisation in return for having her own record wiped clean.

Natalie, 31, is also considering a role in Last Witness, an upcoming film about a psychologist working with the survivor of a bombing.

News that Natalie is linked to the two movies comes just days after it was revealed that she looks set to star in a new biopic about Jackie Kennedy.

The star hasn't signed yet but Deadline reported that she was being "courted" for the lead role in Jackie, which will focus on America's former First Lady in the wake of the assassination of her husband, President John F Kennedy, in 1963.
