Natalie Breaks Silence On JGAG

By August 16, 2013Nat-news

 
It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything from the troubled Jane Got A Gun, which lost it’s director and had several high profile actor merry-go-rounds before finally settling down. Natalie has remained mum on the project…until now. Inquirer has the interview and it includes the extra dose of bad news that the film lost cinematographer Darius Khondji as well. But onto the more positive quotes…

The actress-producer dealt with the headline-making problems by putting them in this context: “People have really hard things in life, like losing loved ones. So, it was important to remember that they were just some problems at work. But, we made the film. We had a great time, and I am excited to see what comes out!”

On why she chose a western in her fifth foray into producing, Natalie explained: “It’s one genre that there haven’t been a lot of female protagonists in. It was such a great script, too.”

To prepare for the film, Natalie watched a lot of westerns. “It was fun getting to watch all the John Ford and Sam Peckinpah movies.”

The rest of the article has some quotes on A Tale Of Love And Darkness, Thor 2, moving to Paris and even Black Swan. Thanks to Belerofonte.

UPDATE – Forgot the link.

    People remain people, no matter how they are respected in the social sphere. I think that Natalie will always remain the best actress who ever existed. Had I known her personally, I would have proposed first.

    Khondji’s departure was learned a few days after all the trouble with the director. It’s a shame, because it’s a great DP, but Mandy Walker is a good cinematography. One of the few good things about Lurhman’s Australia was the photography in locations, and I think have done a great job.

    Well usually the cinematographer and director work really closely together so it’s no surprise that he left with Ramsay. But apparently Khondji also worked on the Shirin Neshat short so it would be interesting to find out whether Natalie recommended Khondji to Ramsay.

    I think this whole “trouble story” was somehow a good advertisement for the film ….. Jane Got a Gun with Natalie is a guarantee for a great success where surely come
