Clint Eastwood's 'American Sniper' if finally rounding out its casting, after Steven Spielberg initially dropped out as director and Eastwood took over the project. The film is shaping up to actually be a major awards season contender for 2015 if the film gets done in time, led by the phenomenal true story of Craig Kyle, a Navy Seal sniper with the 'most confirmed kills in history'.

Bradley Cooper will play the lead role of Kyle, and Sienna Miller has just been cast as the female lead, in the role of Kyle's wife. Apparently, it came down to Miller and Thor actress Jaimie Alexander, but Miller's seniority and experience won her the role. According to the Wrap's report, the role requires her to, "stay home and raise the kids and keep the family safe while Kyle is overseas running missions."
 
Honestly, it says a lot about the dearth of female characters in Hollywood that the role of the wife who stays at home and looks after the kids is actually considered 'hotly contested'. When will we actually get the female sniper or the female spy or the female lead, as opposed to the female characters being relegated to the background?

Either way, it's still a great chance to work with talented actors and a talented director, so you can't fault Sienna for taking the role. She's got some great roles coming up, including a small supporting role in Foxcatcher, another awards-bait film that will come out later this year. Plus, if her recent hot streak is any indication, she'll continue being the frontrunner for many different prestige projects coming up.
