Michael Fassbender is in talks to star opposite Natalie Portman in a western called Jane Got a Gun from the director Lynne Ramsey. Lynne "Splash Everything With Obvious Red" Ramsey!
Okay I wasn't all that crazy about what Ramsey did with the really, really wonderful book We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver, but her previous film Movern Callar was interesting enough, and Shriver's book was maybe impossible to adapt, so I'll give her a pass. At least Tilda was terrific.
Jane Got a Gun is about a woman whose husband shows up shot, being chased down by bad guys - Fassy would play her former amour that she seeks help from. The script was on "the black list" last year.
