Vera Farmiga is to star as a revenge seeking preacher's wife in a new Western.

The Up In The Air star has been cast in indie movie A Thousand Guns, Variety reports.

The film will be directed by Spanish filmmaker Daniel Calparsoro and written by Russell Friedenberg.

Vera, 36, is also soon to make her directorial debut with Higher Ground, in which she will also star.

Higher Ground will be based on This Dark World, a memoir by Carolyn Briggs, who is co-writing the script with Tim Metcalfe.

Carolyn's book tells how after falling pregnant at 17 and living in a trailer she found God and took religious following to a fanatical level, until the breakdown of her marriage in later life made her question her belief.
