The movie with the revolving cast and crew just secured a new villain. Days after Bradley Cooper announced he had to depart “Jane Got a Gun” due to timing issues with his current project, David O. Russell’s “American Hustle,” Ewan McGregor is negotiating to take over the role, Deadline reports
Cooper was a replacement himself, who agreed to take over for Jude Law, after he left. Law’s departure came after the film’s director, Lynne Ramsay, abruptly quit the project on the first day of filming. The reasoning for Ramsay’s departure has yet to be revealed.
“Jane Got A Gun” began filming in March, starring Natalie Portman, Joel Edgerton and Noah Emmerich. Gavin O’Connor, best known for 2011’s “Warrior,” is directing. No release date has been announced for the movie.
