Warrior and The Thing star Joel Edgerton is in negotiations to join Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender in Jane Got A Gun. The movie is an action western being directed by Lynne Ramsey. We don't see a lot of good westerns these days. I want to see more classic western stories like Eastwood's Unforgiven or 3:10 to Yuma, and this sounds like it could be a good one.
Set in the Wild West, Jane (Portman) is married to an outlaw who returns home, badly shot up and left for dead by the fellow criminals he once trusted. Seeking vengeance, Jane enlists the help of a former lover to assist her in the ensuing fight to save her farm. Fassbender would take the role of the former lover, and Edgerton will play Jane's husband.
Edgerton has proved to be a solidly good actor, he will next be seen in the highly anticipated film Zero Dark Thirty, in which he plays the leader of a Navy SEAL team ordered to take down Osama Bin Laden. He also co-stars in The Great Gatsby adaptation.
Jane Got a Gun has a great cast and a solid sounding story, so I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
