Jane Got a Gun (and a release date)
Troubled western film Jane Got a Gun has finally been given a secure release date… despite its producers and original director going toe to toe in a storm of lawsuits.
The cursed production, which stars Natalie Portman, Ewan McGregor and Joel Edgerton and was directed by Gavin O’Connor (who stepped in following the spectacular departure of We Need to Talk about Kevin‘s Lynne Ramsay), will hit cinemas on August 29th next year – the same week that big-name period Western Lawless landed in the US back in 2011.
Jane Got a Gun has seldom left the news in recent months, due to a series of high-profile additions and subtractions on the cast list (Bradley Cooper, we hardly knew ye) and, most recently, the news that the film’s producers are suing Ramsay for waving a gun around while drunk. (Ramsay denies that any case has been brought.) Whatever the truth behind the rumours, we’re basically just interested to see Obi-Wan and Padmé together again – it’s been a while.
