A couple big ticket tidbits for you guys today, both regarding upcoming Natalie films.

– Oscar blogger, Sasha Stone, has mentioned Natalie as a potential awards season contender for Jane Got a Gun. That seems…optimistic at best, but more interestingly, she has the release date of the film set for December 31st. She’s a connected and diligent reporter so she must have heard something…

– A couple interviews with director Marielle Heller confirm that she will be directing Natalie in On the Basis of Sex – previously all we knew was that she was in negotiations. First interview and the second, in which she confirms she didn’t write the script and wants to make a film about a strong, complicated woman is here.
