For those of you who have been following the progress of ‘Jane Got A Gun,’ you’ll know that the film’s production has seen it’s fair share of controversy and setbacks. The addition of Noah Emmerich today, rounds out a cast which has been ever changing. Also starring Joel Edgerton, Natalie Portman and Bradley Cooper, the film was originally supposed to include Michael Fassbender and Jude Law but both departed for their own reasons. This was not the only issue the producers of ‘Jane Got A Gun’ had to face though, as the films original director, Lynn Ramsay, left after disputes with said producers. Gavin O’Connor was the replacement, and having recently directed a huge hit, in ‘Warrior,’ he is certainly riding high.
In terms of the films plot, it is a western genre piece in which Jane, played by Natalie Portman, is married to a criminal (Noah Emmerich). Her husband is double crossed by his former running mates, led by Bradley Cooper, and these ‘bad guys’ set out to take care of him once and for all. Of course, the film gets interesting when Jane enlists the assistance of her former lover (Edgerton) to help save her husband and her home from Cooper and his gang.
