It seems like he is merely existing. His beard, unkempt with tinges of gray in it, is slowly beginning to swallow his face. He looks drastically out of shape. We see him prowling around at night with no oomph in his step. He’s simply there, probably wishing he wasn’t. More than likely he’s been faltering for a long time now just waiting to fade away, overwhelmed by a past that has crippled him mentally and sucked a good chunk of life out of him physically.

Geek Peek: ‘Jane Got A Gun’ Sees Natalie Portman Pointing Six-Shooters
  |  @   |  

A 2015 film that is probably flying low on everyone’s radar is Jane Got A Gun. Starring Natalie Portman, the film has been afflicted with an assortment of problems that includes the film’s original director Lynne Ramsay dropping out of the last minute, Jude Law dropping out because he only signed on because Ramsay was directing, actors dropping out because of scheduling problems, and a lawsuit, not to mention the three times that the release date has been pushed back.

But somehow Gavin O’Connor was able to put the film together. Unfortunately it is scheduled for a September release, but despite that I am very intrigued to see what the director was able to accomplish with all the setbacks the film has experienced. And now we are getting our first look at the film with some new images from Empire. Hit the jump to check them out.

Michael Fassbender To Help Natalie Portman Defend The Farm In Western ‘Jane’s Got A Gun’

Lynne Ramsay may not be a household name, but you may have heard of the very dark film called We Need To Talk About Kevin. Now Ramsay is ready to follow that up with a new western titled Jane’s Got A Gun, and she already has Natalie Portman signed on to play the lead. The film centers on a wife who must protect her farm from a gang after her husband stumbles into her home injured with multiple gunshot wounds. She hopes to get some help by recruiting her former lover.

Now it’s being reported that Michael Fassbender is in talks to play that former lover. This sounds like it has the potential to be a very good western flick. The script originated from the 2011 Black List and was written by Brian Duffields.
