The 34-year-old actress stars as Jane Hammond, who has built a life on the rugged western plains with her husband Bill “Ham” Hammond (Noah Emmerich) and young daughter. When Ham stumbles home riddled with bullets after a run-in with the relentless John Bishop (Ewan McGregor) and his gang, she knows they will not stop until her family is dead. In desperation, Jane turns to Dan Frost (Joel Edgerton), a man from her past, for help. Haunted by old memories, Jane’s past meets the present in a heart-stopping battle for survival.
“I really loved seeing this woman come up against so much and really find her own strength,” Natalie said in a statement. “Jane’s process was also my process. It was a relevant parallel experience of learning how to stand my ground, face difficult times and not crumble.”
The movie will be released in theaters via The Weinstein Company on January 29.
