It seems like the problems with Jane Got A Gun have come to an end, as the cast has now been completed with Noah Emmerich stepping into the final main role, according to Deadline. It comes a few weeks after director Lynne Ramsay didn’t show up for the first day of shooting after major problems with the producer, shortly followed by Jude Law, who’d only signed up to work with her (he himself was a late replacement when Michael Fassbender was forced to leave due to scheduling issues).
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 (Emmerich) 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.
Despite all the problems, the project has ended up with a good cast and decent director, so hopefully the production issues won’t be visible in the final film.
