WARRIOR Director Gavin O’Connor Replaces Lynne Ramsey on JANE GOT A GUN

Posted March 20, 2013 by Rick in Movie News


Lynne Ramsey did not show up on the first day of shooting on her new movie, Jane Got a Gun.  The movie is about a woman (Natalie Portman) who tries to escape from her outlaw husband (Jude Law).  She is positive that his gang will try to destroy her farm so she turns to her ex-lover (Joel Edgerton) for help to defend the farm and save her family.  Ramsey’s withdrawal from the project makes her seem completely unprofessional but maybe there’s more to the story.  She has yet to tell her side of the story.

Although Ramsey dropped out of her own project, the show must go on.  According to the Deadline, Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) has decided to take over as director.  O’Conner’s latest project, FX’s The Americans was a success so there’s no need to be worried about his role as a director.
