Natalie Portman’s ‘Jane Got A Gun’ Heading For U.S. Sale

The Weinstein Co., Relativity in talks for rights

Relativity Media and The Weinstein Co. are in talks for U.S. rights to “Jane Got a Gun,” starring Natalie Portman , Joel Edgerton, Ewan McGregor, Noah Emmerich and Rodrigo Santoro.

The deal came together after footage was shown at Cannes this week. The companies had no comment, but an informed source confirmed the talks.

CAA is repping domestic rights and Exclusive Media is selling international rights to “Jane” at Cannes.

“Jane” is produced by Scott Steindorff, Portman and her Handsomecharlie Films, Aleen Keshishian, Terry Dougas, Scott LaStaiti and Straight Up Films’ Regency Boies.

Gavin O’Connor directed “Jane,” replacing Lynne Ramsay as director on the indie Western. Ramsay departed in March just before shooting was to start in New Mexico.

Gun,” penned by Brian Duffield, stars Portman as a woman who asks an ex-lover for help save her outlaw husband from a gang out to kill him. Joel Edgerton plays the ex-lover, while Jude Law and Bradley Cooper were on board to play the leader of the gang — a role finally filled by Emmerich.

Michael Fassbender had been set to play the ex-lover role but left the project several weeks before production started.

O’Connor’s directing credits include “Pride and Glory” and the pilot of Showtime’s “The Americans.”

Deadline.com first reported the talks for sale of U.S. rights.
