It appears that one of the cast members has broken a mirror, since so many things have gone wrong for the "Jane Got a Gun" production. Despite all the negativity and constant changes surrounding it, Natalie Portman and crew have pulled some magic out of their hats because this thing does look like it's going to take off, as Bradley Cooper has just signed on to fill the last main empty role. To fully understand the momentum of this, we must first catch you up to speed on all the mishaps.
First Michael Fassbender left the role of the protagonist due to "X-Men: Days of Future Past" scheduling conflicts, so therefore Joel Edgterton moved from the villain's role he was set to play, over to Fassbender's old role.
Then director Lynn Ramsay left the production suddenly and Jude Law, who was set up to play the villain after Edgetton moved over, also exited because he wanted to work with the "We Need to Talk About Kevin" director.
In a hurry, "Warrior" director Gavin O'Connnor was locked in to helm and now news has hit that Bradley Cooper will fill the empty shoes of the villain. This will be a chance to show off more depth for Cooper, as he did in "Silver Linings Playbook", so this seems like a great move for him.
It's been quite a ride for "Jane Got a Gun" but perhaps the perseverance from the cast and crew will enable this film to still be a success. Only time will tell but I'm most certainly rooting for them.
