“Jane Got a Gun” got a home.
Scott Steindorff’s new financing shingle Scott Pictures and banker Peter Nathanial have signed on to finance the Natalie Portman-toplined drama, directed by “We Need to Talk About Kevin” helmer Lynne Ramsay. Portman will also produce the project through her Handsomecharlie Films banner along with Terry Dougas of 1821 and Chris Coen.
Steindorff will produce the pic, which was shopped at this year’s Cannes Film Fest. Brian Duffield penned the script.
Brillstein Entertainment Partners’ Aleen Keshishian will exec produce with 1821’s Paris Latsis, Scott Pictures’ Peter Fruchtman and Scott LaStaiti and Stone Village exec Dylan Russell.
“Gun” centers on a woman who must ask an ex-lover for help in order to save her outlaw husband from a gang out to kill him.
Pic will mark the first film for Scott Pictures, the second of Steindorff’s banners. “The Lincoln Lawyer” producer also runs production company Stone Village.
Steindorff and Stone Village’s Dylan Russell negotiated the deal with CAA, which reps Portman, and WME, which reps Ramsay.
