Jane Got a Gun

U.S. Distributor: Relativity Media and The Weinstein Company

Jane Got a Gun may have lost some feathers (players) along the way and would have broke into our top 25 if a certain female filmmaker had remained on board, but we’re down all the same for this gunslinger revenge flick. Gavin O’Connor’s sixth feature film (Tumbleweeds remains his best work to date) is the ultimate test for the filmmaker who has had in his hands in several genres.

Gist: A woman asks her ex-lover for help in order to save her outlaw husband from a gang out to kill him.

Release Date: An August 29th date has been pegged, but we would not be surprised if a major fest premiere date ultimately shifts this to further down on the autumn schedule.
