Women in Cinema: Welcome back to the second installment of the 40 Women-Centric films of 2015, if you missed Part 1, click here.
Again, this is in no particular order and, as always, release dates are subject to change:
20. “Jane Got a Gun”
Director: Gavin O’Connor
Writers: Brian Duffield, Anthony Tambakis
Starring: Natalie Portman, Ewan McGregor, Rodrigo Santoro, Noah Emmerich
Synopsis: “A woman asks her ex-lover for help in order to save her outlaw husband from a gang out to kill him,” IMDb.
The Dish: Oh, boy, this film was in production limbo for quite some time. Lynne Ramsay (“We Need to Talk About Kevin“) was originally set to direct, but eventually left the film. Actors Jude Law and Michael Fassbender were, at one time, set to star, but also left the project, complicating filming. After much uncertainty, the film is now completed and slated for a release later this year.
Release date: September 4
