This marks the fourth collaboration between Portman and Law. The two previously starred together in Cold Mountain, My Blueberry Nights, and Closer.
The basic plot we have for Jane Got a Gun is:
"A woman (Portman) whose outlaw husband returns home riddled with bullet wounds and barely alive. When her husband’s gang (led by Law) eventually tracks him down to finish the job, she is forced to reach out to an ex-lover (Edgerton) and ask if he will help defend her farm."
Filming is set to start in early April in New Mexico which conflicted with Fassbender's commitments to begin filming for X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Joel Edgerton just finished publicity for Zero Dark Thirty and is about to start again for The Great Gatsby. Jude Law recently starred in Side Effects and just wrapped filming on The Grand Budapest Hotel. Natalie Portman was in the UK shooting for Thor: The Dark World earlier this year and recently wrapped Knight of Cups and an untitled Terrance Malick project.
Lots of busy bees for this one.
