Hopefully the musical chairs cast and directing problems with Jane Got A Gun have come to an end, with Bradley Cooper stepping in to replace Jude Law in the Western, according to Variety. Jude Law dropped out of the project last month, just one day after original director Lynne Ramsay abruptly left the project on the first day of shooting.
Jude Law himself was a last-minute replacement, boarding the project last month to take over for Michael Fassbender. Jude Law left after Lynne Ramsay departed as he’d only joined the project so that he could work with her.
Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) has taken over in the director’s chair working from a screenplay by Brian Duffield. The movie is about Jane (Natalie Portman), a young wife whose husband comes home riddled with bullet wounds, clinging on to dear life. She seeks the help of an ex-lover (Joel Edgerton) when the outlaw (Bradley Cooper) who shot her husband comes back to finish off the job.
Bradley Cooper is currently shooting David O. Russell’s next movie, and will shoot his Jane Got a Gun scenes once he’s completed that.
