There have been a few changes in the casting of Lynne Ramsey’s soon-to-shoot western Jane Got a Gun. The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Michael Fassbender has departed the project (due to conflicts with the production schedule on X-Men: Days of Future Past). As a result, Joel Edgerton, previously attached to play the villain, will take over Fassbender’s role and Jude Law will step in to play the antagonist.
The film, which will also star Natalie Portman and Rodrigo Santoro, features a script by Brian Duffield and centers on a woman (Portman) who must ask an ex-lover for help in order to save her outlaw husband from a gang out to kill him.
Law recently provided a voice for DreamWorks Animation’s Rise of the Guardians and can be seen in theaters now in Steven Soderbergh’s Side Effects.
