Portman’s Western Postponed Once Again



Natalie Portman’s problematic western movie Jane Got a Gun won’t hit the cinemas in 2014, due to numerous delays and casting changes.

The making of the movie was due to start in 2013, but director Lynne Ramsay left the project, urging producers to find a replacement for him.

Gavin O’Connor then stepped in. Portman, Noah Emmerich, Joel Edgerton and Ewan McGregor all landed roles.

After that change, the project has had many casting changes. Michael Fassbender, Jude Law and Bradley Cooper left the project. Edgerton replaced Fassbender’s role, and McGregor took over both Law’s and Cooper’s.

Relativity Media bosses and the Weinstein Co. were hoping to release the movie in August 2014, but the newest statement, released on Thursday, April 24, said the movie will hit cinemas in U.S. in February, 2015.

The movie tells a story about Jane Hammond (Portman), a good girl who’s married to one of the worst men in town.

When he, Bill (Emmerich), turns against his gang, the Bishop Boys, and returns home hardly alive with eight bullets in his back, Jane decides to take matters into her own hands.

As the notorious leader, John Bishop (McGregor), is getting geared up for revenge, Jane’s best hope for her family’s survival rests with her former love, Dan Frost (Edgerton), a man whose hatred for Bill is overshadowed only by his love for Jane.
