The 'Black Swan' actress will also produce the Lynne Ramsay-directed film project, which is said to have sparked heated bidding war when shopped at the 2012 Cannes Film festival.

Natalie Portman continues to secure leading role in high-profile movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar winner has been locked to produce and star in a Western movie called "Jane Got a Gun", which screenplay is included on the Black List.

Written by Brian Duffield, "Jane Got a Gun" revolves around a woman whose outlaw husband returns home alive despite being riddled with bullet wounds. When her husband's gang hunts him down to finish their business, the woman is forced to reach out to an ex-lover and ask if he will help defend her farm. The film is set to be directed by "We Need to Talk About Kevin" helmer Lynne Ramsay.

The film was introduced by CAA to financiers, foreign sales agents and Hollywood studios at the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival. It was said that the project sparked heated bidding wars during the world-class event. Due to the high demand, the gig could end up being backed by a combination of equity, studio money and foreign presales.

Portman, who won the Oscar for Best Actress through her acclaimed performance as obsessed ballerina Nina in "Black Swan", will next be seen returning as Jane Foster in "Thor 2".
