Joel Edgerton joins Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman in Jane Got a Gun
Since breaking onto the scene with ANIMAL KINGDOM, Joel Edgerton has been putting together quite a resume. He starred in WARRIOR, which was one my favorite films last year. This year, he had the ill-received THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN, but came back strong with what might be the Oscar favorite in ZERO DARK THIRTY. Next summer he has THE GREAT GATSBY with Leonardo DiCaprio and now he’s lined up another interesting project that will team him with another A-list male actor; the Western JANE GOT A GUN. Joel Edgerton, Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman in a Western? Sounds fun.
JANE GOT A GUN will follow Natalie Portman’s character who is a woman seeking help from her ex-lover when her outlaw husband is injured and being hunted by his former gang. Michael Fassbender will play Portman’s ex-lover, and Joel Edgerton is filling in as her husband. Lynne Ramsay will direct the film from screenwriter Brian Duffield and shooting is set to start sometime early 2013. (Deadline)
