Michael Fassbender May Join Natalie Portman in ‘Jane Got a Gun’
Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman in the same film? Please don't pinch us if we're dreaming. It seems ol' Fassy is in talks to co-star with Portman in Lynne Ramsay's western 'Jane Got a Gun.' Our emotions agree with Natalie Portman's face in the above photo.
According to a scoop over at Vulture, Michael Fassbender is negotiations to star with Natalie Portman in 'Jane Got a Gun.' Penned by Brian Duffield, the script was on the prestigious black list last year. Lynne Ramsay will direct the film as a follow-up to her startling drama 'We Need to Talk About Kevin.'
'Jane Got a Gun' stars Portman as the titular Jane, a woman whose husband shows up on her front doorstep riddled with bullets and on the edge of death after running around with a band of outlaws. As the very criminals who left her husband for dead encroach on her property, Jane turns to an ex-lover for help to protect her homestead and keep her husband alive. It sounds like a western twist on the old 'Virgin Spring' story, so in other words, it sounds pretty damn awesome.
