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 see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    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.
