We’ve said this before, but it seems the cast of Jane Got A Gun is finally complete, with Ewan McGregor stepping in to on take the villain role in the movie. He replaces the recently departed Bradley Cooper, who dropped out due to scheduling problems.
Cooper himself was a replacement for Jude Law, who dropped out shortly after director Lynne Ramsay left. She bailed shortly before shooting was set to commence, due to conflict with the producers. Even before that, Michael Fassbender had left, as he couldn’t shoot Jane Got A Gun and X-Men: Days Of Future Past at the same time.
However now it appears everything is finally sorted, with McGregor stepping into the villain role. The movie is currently on a shooting break, which was factored in when Gavin O’Connor stepped in to direct at the last minute. Ewan will head to the set next month when shooting restarts.
Natalie Portman stars as the title character, whose husband (Noah Emmerich) comes home riddled with bullet wounds. When the band of outlaws of shot him comes to Jane’s farm to finish the job, she seeks help from a former lover (Joel Edgerton) to ward off these gunmen. McGregor will play the leader of the bad guys.
