Natalie Portman - Jane Got A Gun Gets Summer 2014 Release

Subscribe to Natalie Portman alerts

Natalie Portman's embattled western Jane Got A Gun has finally locked down a summer, 2014 release date after a series of delays and casting changes.

The film has been plagued by problems - director Lynne Ramsay quit a day before shooting was due to begin in March (13) and Michael Fassbender had to be replaced by Jude Law, who subsequently dropped out as Bradley Cooper stepped in. The Hangover star exited the project in May (13), and production finally got underway this summer (13) with Ewan MCGregor onboard as the villain.

Now the movie, helmed by Gavin O'Connor, has officially secured a release date and will hit U.S. theatres at the end of August (14).

However, Jane Got a Gun's troubles are far from over - producers filed suit against Ramsay earlier this month (Nov13), accusing her of breach of contract and fraud for receiving a payment of $750,000 ($500,000) for a job she did not complete. They are seeking the return of her salary, in addition to punitive damages.
