2016 Release Dates: Jane's Got A Gun & More
Three major release dates were mentioned in the last 24 hours (minus the “Divergent” finale "Allegiant" being broken into two films of course). One has an unhappy ending (so far anyhow) and two are eyeing the horizon. Let’s start with the bad news: Natalie Portman’s troubled western “Jane Got a Gun” has been un-dated by Relativity Media. Originally scheduled for August 29th of this year, Relativity has pulled the film off the calendar and have not set a new date for it.

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.

And so, as the western "Jane Got A Gun" heads into post-production, the main conversation about the movie still remains around what exactly happened when Lynne Ramsay abruptly left the movie at the 11th hour. Her sudden exit caused a flurry of changes in casting and of course, in directing, with Gavin O'Connor ultimately stepping in to guide the movie and bring it over the finish line. But it seems there are still plenty of hurt feelings to go around.

Lawsuits At High Noon: Lynne Ramsay Sued Over 'Jane Got A Gun,' Suit Alleges She Was Drunk & Dangerous On Set

While Lynne Ramsay's exit from "Jane Got A Gun" earlier this year, followed by some casting switcheroos, was no doubt a headache for all involved, the focus at the time seemed to be on getting the picture made. Producers quickly snared Gavin O'Connor ("Warrior," "Pride & Glory") to take over and the movie was shot this summer without incident. But of course, the whole story about what went down before cameras rolled has yet to be told. For her part, Ramsay has remained mum about those events, though reports suggested she was battling for final cut, however a new lawsuit suggests her behavior on the movie was far from professional.

Well, despite whatever upheaval is going on casting wise, perhaps Joel Edgerton wasn't kidding when he said everything was "wonderful" on the set of "Jane Got A Gun." Thus far, the villain role has been toughest to slot with Michael Fassbender, Jude Law and Bradley Cooper all coming and going as the movie has been rocked by director changes and cast defections, but perhaps this one will stick? At any rate, it will give "Star Wars" fans the reunion between Obi Wan-Kenobi and Queen Amidala they've been waiting for.

We're not going to recount the saga of the various ins and outs of the currently in production western "Jane Got A Gun," but if there is one person (besides Natalie Portman) who has seen the project through from day one, it's Joel Edgerton. Originally slated to play the villain, only to switch to the husband role when Michael Fassbender bailed and Jude Law joined (the latter exited, to be replaced by Cooper...who left earlier this week...) Edgerton has weathered the storm, and according to him, while on the outside it might look like the movie is in turmoil, it couldn't be better.

Bradley Cooper
The saga continues... For a moment, it looked like everything was going to be okay on the troubled western "Jane Got A Gun." After Michael Fassbender's departure followed not longer after by director Lynne Ramsay's dramatic bailing on the movie literally days before cameras were going to roll (depending on who you ask she blindsided producers, or simply couldn't come to terms with them) the movie recovered with "Warrior" director Gavin O'Connor taking over the director's chair. The cast was shaken up a bit with the long attached Natalie Portman (who is also a producer on the movie) being joined by Joel Edgerton (who changed roles during the casting shuffle), Bradley Cooper (replacing Jude Law who also eventually exited) and Noah Emmerich. Now the movie has lost another major actor.

Well, there are two version of "Jane Got A Gun": the movie that could have been and the one we're going to get. As you well know, Lynne Ramsay was long attached to direct the western and had corralled a cast that include Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender and Joel Edgerton. Then Fassbender left, and Jude Law joined. Then Ramsay left. Then Gavin O'Connor joined. Then Law left. Then Bradley Cooper joined. Still with us?

Talk about snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. Only a few weeks back, things were looking grim for the much-buzzed-about western "Jane Got a Gun." The film, starring and produced by Natalie Portman, had a Black List-ed script and a top-notch cast, but a few weeks after Michael Fassbender left the project, director Lynne Ramsay bailed just as production was meant to get underway, with actor Jude Law, who was to play the villain, following hot on her heels.

Filming might have got underway, but the dust is still settling on what was undoubtedly the biggest news story of the week: "We Need To Talk About Kevin" director Lynne Ramsay seemingly walking out of her latest film, Western "Jane Got A Gun" on the first day of production, before a frame had been shot. She was swiftly replaced by "Warrior" helmer Gavin O'Connor, but actor Jude Law followed Ramsay out the door, leaving stars Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton without a villain (though Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire and Jeff Bridges are apparently being courted).
