Ramsay signed on to helm the 2011 Black List action western in March 2012, but apparently left the production days before shooting was to commence in May 2013. The BAFTA-winning director has never made any public statements regarding her departure from the project. Observers of the situation have speculated that she and producer Scott Steindorf fought over “perceived delays and control of final cut.”
Ramsay is reportedly in Greece, writing her next project. (She adapted her two previous films, We Need to Talk About Kevin and Morvern Callar.) Here’s hoping she can put this legal mess behind her and make her next movie in peace.
