Edgerton, who put his name on the map with the movie Animal Kingdom (2010), is currently in talks for the role of the bad guy in Jane Got a Gun. Natalie Portman will produce and star in the film, which "centers on Jane Hammond (Portman), who reaches out to her ex-lover (Fassbender) to help her when her outlaw husband becomes the target of a violent gang. Edgerton would play John Bishop, the leader of the gang coming to kill Hammond's husband," according to Deadline.com.
Production is set to start early next year, under the direction of Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin).
