Ewan McGregor

If nothing else, the making of Jane Got a Gun just might make one hell of a documentary one day. The latest news on the plagued Western is that Ewan McGregor is now negotiating to play the essential villain role in the film. Yes, that’s the role that has, at one point or another, been occupied by Joel Edgerton (who is now playing the good guy of the film), Jude Law, and Bradley Cooper, in (very) short order. Hopefully this McGregor casting will stick and the production can get a move on and actually turn into a feature film we can all watch one day, instead of just chronicling it as a cautionary tale in the fickle world of Hollywood.

The film is still set to be directed by Gavin O’Connor, with producer Natalie Portman sticking to her guns as the eponymous Jane, a tough farm wife who must defend her home against a band of (hopefully) McGregor-led outlaws intent on killing her criminal husband (Noah Emmerich) who eventually enlists the help of a former lover (Edgerton) to protect her life and livelihood. Yeehaw and such. [Deadline Hollywood]
