Delays, delays, delays. Relativity’s western “Jane Got A Gun” starring Natalie Portman was probably 2013’s most troubled production (much of it already recapped here). A director quit/was fired, there were ugly lawsuits, three actors that jumped ship one after another (including Michael Fassbender; with Ewan McGregor replacing him as the villain) and general uneasiness around the movie.
None of this has been helped by the picture’s release schedule that has been shifted three times. Originally, supposed to come out late summer 2014, then February of this year and now it’s not arriving until September 4th (which means it likely won’t premiere at any festivals before its release unless Venice quickly rolls it out which seems highly unlikely).
In any case, those still hotly anticipating the picture are in for a treat: first look photos of the film have finally arrived. “Jane Got a Gun” stars Portman, Joel Edgerton, Ewan McGregor, Noah Emmerich, Rodrigo Santoro, and Boyd Holbrook, and centers on a woman (Portman) who asks her ex-lover (Edgerton) for help in order to save her outlaw husband (Emmerich) from a gang out to kill him. Check out the photos below. Do you still have a lot of hope for the Gavin O’Connor-directed film? “Warrior” has definitely become a cult-hit. Sound off below. [Unanimous via Natalie Portman.com]
