To say things haven’t been as good behind the scenes of Gavin O’Conner’s Jane Got A Gun is quite the understatement. It all started with original director Lynne Ramsay quitting/getting fired (depending on which one you believe), a number of messy lawsuits, and a variety of actors all departing the project at a fairly late stage. Jane Got A Gun’s release date has also been shifted around numerous times, moving from Summer 2014 to February 2015, and finally September of this year. But fear not, we have gotten an official synopsis for the film and a handful of pics to hold us over. Here is the official synopsis:
“Young and pretty with a soul of pure steel, Jane Hammond (Natalie Portman) is a good girl married to one of the worst baddies in town. When her husband Bill (Noah Emmerich) turns against his own gang, the vicious Bishop Boys, and returns home barely alive with eight bullets in his back, Jane knows it’s time to ditch the dress for a pair of pants and strap on her own gun. As the relentless leader John Bishop (Ewan McGregor) gears up for revenge, Jane’s best hope for her family’s survival rests with her old love Dan Frost (Joel Edgerton) – a gunslinger whose hatred for Bill is only slightly overshadowed by his love for Jane. Together Jane and Dan spring clever traps, luring Bishop’s men to certain death just as their old feelings for each other resurface amidst the flying bullets“
Jane Got A Gun hits theatres on September 4th, 2015.
