Black Swan‘s Natalie Portman is set to star in and produce Jane Got a Gun. The western will center on “a woman whose outlaw husband returns home riddled with bullet wounds and barely alive. When her husband’s gang eventually tracks him down to finish the job, she is forced to reach out to an ex-lover and ask if he will help defend her farm.” I think I’ll skip this film, unless her “ex-lover” is played by The L Word‘s Katherine Moennig.

Anne Hathaway is all suited up in Catwoman gear for her Dark Night Rises character poster.

Viola Davis, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Rosie Perez and Holly Hunter join forces for Won’t Back Down. The drama, based on actual events, is about “two determined mothers who transform their children’s failing inner city school.” The below trailer makes me want to burn my bra and scream out for “girl power!”

Actress Rose Byrne participated in an “Ambushed in Bed” interview for Funny or Die. At the 4:32 mark the interviewer asks Byrne if she’s ever played a lesbian role and from the Bridesmaids star’s reaction I don’t think it’s on her to-do list.

Check out the new Golden Girls in Hollywood. Who do you think works their metallic magic better, Florence Welch in Marie Claire or Tilda Swinton in Candy? I’m team Tilda!
