Ewan McGregor has reportedly entered talks to star in 'Jane Got A Gun', a Western film starring Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton.
Ewan McGregor is in talks to star in 'Jane Got A Gun'.
The 'Impossible' actor has entered negotiations to play the main villain in the Western film - which has been hampered by cast departures - according to Deadline.
Edgerton was originally cast in the role but was later switched to a protagonist role after 'X-Men: First Class' actor Michael Fassbender dropped out of the movie.
Cooper was then cast in the role but also departed, citing a scheduling conflict. The actor's latest flick, 'American Hustle' - which reunites him with 'Silver Linings Playbook' director David O'Russell and actress Jennifer Lawrence - has faced a production setback following the Boston Marathon bombings last month, making it impossible for him to juggle the two roles.
The Western film centres on a woman who turns to her gunman ex-lover to protect her husband from an outlaw gang.
The flick is being directed by Gavin O'Connor and produced by Portman, Scott Steindorff and Aleen Keshishian.
