Joel Edgerton is in talks to join Lynne Ramsay's Western, Jane Got A Gun.
Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender are already on board for the upcoming drama by the We Need To Talk About Kevin filmmaker, and the Warrior actor could be starring alongside them, reported Deadline.com.
Oscar-winning actress Natalie is to play Jane, a 'good girl' married to a gun-slinging renegade husband Bill, to be portrayed by Joel.
Shame star Michael has signed on for the role of Jane's ex-lover, who she turns to for help.
Production on Jane Got A Gun, written by Brian Duffield, is scheduled to begin in February 2013.
Australian actor Joel, who swapped blows opposite Tom Hardy in Mixed Martial Arts film Warrior, will next be seen in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby and Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty.
