As we revealed recently, Michael Fassbender (Shame, Inglorious Bastards, Prometheus etc etc.) is one of Natalie’s favourite actors. No real shock there since a) he’s been brilliant in pretty much every role he’s taken so far and b) the guy is a stud.
So with Natalie producing her upcoming western, Jane Got A Gun, it’s not a major shock that she’s trying to get Fassbender on board. Here’s hoping he can fit it into his schedule, because that guy seems to always have a ton of projects on the go at once.
Check out The Vulture for all the details.
It may be that Jane Got a Gun, but it’s looking more and more like Michael Fassbender will be its triggerman: Our spies tell us that Fassbender is negotiating to star in the Western that’s already attracted Natalie Portman and We Need to Talk About Kevin director Lynne Ramsay.
In Jane, Portman, who is also producing, would play a woman married to an outlaw who returns home bullet-riddled and half-dead, betrayed by criminal confederates hot on his heels. Fassbender would play the ex-lover Portman seeks out to help her defend her farm from the imminent onslaught of black hats.
