Joel Edgerton (Warrior, The Thing) is in talks to join the Western vengeance film Jane Got a Gun. Director Lynne Ramsey (We Need to Talk About Kevin) and producer / star Natalie Portman (Black Swan) have already signed up Michael Fassbender (Prometheus) for a main role in the movie, which is due to begin shooting early next year.
The script (written by Brian Duffield) follows Jane Hammond (Portman), who reaches out to her former lover Dan Frost (Fassbender) to help defend her home after her outlaw husband is betrayed and shot by his own gang.
Edgerton would play John Bishop, the leader of the gang, who are on their way to finish the job. He can next be seen in Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty with Jessica Chastain, which is out in the UK on January 25th. He will also be starring in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, »
