First JANE GOT A GUN Images Revealed

Delayed Relativity’s Western Film

I somehow missed this interesting story about Natalie Portman‘s passion project Jane Got a Gun, the Western thriller which has endured one of the most troubled productions in recent memory – with director Lynne Ramsay quitting, there were ugly lawsuits, Michael Fassbender, Jude Law and Bradley Cooper all jumped ship one after another, and The Weinstein Company pushing back the release on two occasions.

Finally, the production landed on Ewan McGregor, replacing Fassbender as the villain, and Warrior helmer Gavin O’Connor stepped in at the last minute to take over the film. Starring Portman, McGregor, Joel Edgerton, Noah Emmerich, Rodrigo Santoro, and Boyd Holbrook, the troubled Western Jane Got a Gun is now arriving September 4th and the first imagery for the film is online. We’ll be looking forward to the trailer, but in the meantime, head over to the gallery to see the photos.

Young and pretty with a soul of pure steel, Jane Hammond is a good girl married to one of the worst baddies in town. When her husband Bill turns against his own gang, the vicious Bishop Boys, and returns home barely alive with eight bullets in his back, Jane knows it’s time to ditch the dress for a pair of pants and strap on her own gun. As the relentless leader John Bishop gears up for revenge, Jane’s best hope for her family’s survival rests with her old love Dan Frost – a gunslinger whose hatred for Bill is only slightly overshadowed by his love for Jane. Together Jane and Dan spring clever traps, luring Bishop’s men to certain death just as their old feelings for each other resurface amidst the flying bullets.

Written by Brian Duffield, Jane Got a Gun made the 2011 “Black List.” I have a feeling this is gonna be kick a$$!
