Natalie Portman To Star In Western Flick ‘Jane Got A Gun’


Actresses like Natalie Portman get snapped up to star in the hottest new movies, and today we have heard that Natalie is starring in and producing the new hot film of 2012- Jane Got a Gun. The film is being directed by Lynne Ramsay, who is most known for her work on We Need to Talk About Kevin which starred Tilda Swinton, and Deadline is reporting that this movie, which is a bit of a Western in style, has created the most buzz at the Cannes Film Festival. Could this be the one to give Natalie another Oscar winning performance?

Natalie is certainly one of the busier actresses in Hollywood. She is currently working on a pair of films with The Tree of Life director Terrence Malick called Lawless and Knight of Cups. She will also star in Thor 2, which is set for release in November 2013. According to Deadline, Jane Got A Gun tells the story of a young wife, played by Natalie, whose outlaw husband returns to their farm hanging onto his life by a thread. She has to ask an ex-lover to defend the farm as her husband’s gang threatens to kill him. It sounds like this film will have a bit of a violent spin with the gangster meets Western storyline. Given the Indie bent of it’s director, Lynne Ramsay, I am also guessing that this one won’t be too typical a Hollywood film. They have also scored one of the best young actresses in Hollywood, so this could definitely be one to watch out for.
