It’s a game of musical chairs over at Jane Got A Gun, as while Natalie Portman stays attached to the Lynne Ramsey film, the main male roles are busy moving around. For a long time Michael Fassbender was set to co-star, but with shooting now scheduled to start next month, he’s had to step aside as he committed to X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
His role has gone to Joel Edgerton, who had recently signed on for a different role in the movie, with THR reporting that Jude Law is now stepping into the part Edgerton jumped from.
Portman is set to play Jane Hammond, a woman in the Old West who enlists the help of a former lover (Egderton) when a band of outlaws come searching for her husband. Jude Law will play John Bishop, the villainous leader of this evil group.
Ramsay is set to direct from Brian Duffield’s Black Listed screenplay.
