Michael Fassbender - Michael Fassbender For Jane Got A Gun?

Michael Fassbender is in negotiations to star in 'Jane Got A Gun'.

The 'Shame' actor - who has become one of the most in-demand names in Hollywood in recent years - has entered talks to star alongside Natalie Portman in the Lynne Ramsey-directed film, which has a script by Brian Duffield.

The movie tells the tale of a woman - played by Natalie - whose husband is betrayed and shot by his own gang and while lying injured, she decided to take action against the criminals.

To do so, she recruits a former lover - potentially Fassbender - to help defend her home.

Although the Irish actor has not yet been confirmed for a part, negotiations are likely to complete soon as it is set to begin shooting in early 2013.

Michael, who is based in London, is currently shooting Sir Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor' alongside Brad Pitt and is also lining up the sequel to 'X-Men: First Class', reprising the role of Magneto.
