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.

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
