Shooting for the Natalie Portman Western "Jane Got a Gun", was supposed to kick-off on Monday in Santa Fe. After so many changes and role swaps, it appeared that the formula was finally perfected. A curse seems to be looming around the project as yet more big changes, in the form of the director and one of the stars leaving, took place.

Director Lynne Ramsay from the critically acclaimed indie "We Need to Talk About Kevin", didn't show up to set and reportedly dropped out of the film suddenly. Gavin O'Connor who helmed "Warrior", is now locked in to shoot. Still with us? Ok good. Let's keep going through the intricate and confusing web of this production.

The shifting of players doesn't stop there. Michael Fassbender had to drop out to play the lead protagonist because of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" conflicts, so Joel Edgerton ditched the villain's cloak to portray that role. Jude Law came on-board as the new villain but with Ramsay's recent departure, Law also left the picture because he wanted to work with her.

Now O’Connor, who is aiming to start shooting the picture on Thursday, will have to find another actor to play the villain in a hurry. Good luck to O'Connor, Portman and team, they definitely have their work cut out for them on this one.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
