Natalie Portman grabs a Western

Natalie Portman is reportedly attached to Western drama Jane Got A Gun.

The Thor star, who took some time off following her Oscar win for Black Swan and the birth of her first child, is tipped for the leading role of a woman who has to defend her farm when her outlaw husband is attacked by a gang.

We Need To Talk About Kevin filmmaker Lynne Ramsay is rumoured to be directing the movie, which has been described as a Western and is written by Brian Duffield, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Natalie, who welcomed son Aleph last June with husband Benjamin Millepied, is set to star in two new Terrence Malick films and will return for Thor 2. Those films are all expected to start shooting this year.
