Lynne Ramsay‘s We Need to Talk About Kevin is a moving film that will leave most unsettled and in pure shock of what they just watched. I can’t say that I liked the film, but I certainly appreciate what Ramsay achieved in it, especially from her performers.
Her next project is titled Jane Got a Gun and it already stars Natalie Portman. Vulture is reporting that Michael Fassbender is circling the role opposite of Portman, which would pit two of Hollywood’s biggest indie stars together in a film anchored by a unique director.
Fassbender is easily one of the best (and busiest) performers working today and Portman is always a favorite when it comes to casting a strong female lead. The two working together could make for something really special. I do hope the deal goes through, as Fassbender is currently working on a handful of projects that could restrict him from being involved with the film.
Jane Got a Gun is scheduled to start filming sometime in 2013. Here’s a brief plot synopsis:
A woman asks her ex-lover for help in order to save her outlaw husband from a gang out to kill him.
