Already earning plenty of ink thanks to its troubled history and still pending lawsuits, the western "Jane Got A Gun" crossed the finish line with director Gavin O'Connor and is now slated for a summer release in 2014.

The Weinstein Company and Relativity have announced that the movie will drop on August 29, 2014. Starring Natalie Portman, Ewan McGregor, Joel Edgerton and Noah Emmerich, the film will follow Jane Hammond (Portman), a good girl married to one of the worst baddies in town. When her husband Bill (Emmerich) turns against his own gang, the vicious Bishop Boys, and returns home barely alive with eight bullets in his back, Jane decides to grab a gun and take matters into her own hands. As the relentless leader John Bishop (McGregor) gears up for revenge, Jane’s best hope for her family’s survival rests with her old love Dan Frost (Edgerton)—a gunslinger whose hatred for Bill is only slightly overshadowed by his love for Jane. 

The release will put the movie in theaters with virtually no competition, as it will open against the delayed thriller "The Loft" (staring Karl Urban and Matthias Schoenaerts) and some Lionsgate horror thing called "Jessabelle." It's also the same date that The Weinstein Company gave John Hillcoat's "Lawless" a couple years back, where it opened at #2 (behind Lionsgate horror "The Possession"). So it looks like it'll be a similar showdown this time around with cheapie horror vs. period action with big stars, with the winner yet to be determined. And of course, the question that will be looming: will this play Cannes as did "Lawless"? [THR]
