Bradley Cooper takes Jude Law's place in Jane Got A Gun

Apr. 5, 2013by: Niki Stephens

What started out as a well intention idea has now quickly become kind of a mess. Natalie Portman just wanted to make a western with a female at the heart. She thought everything was going good with Lynne Ramsay (WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN) at the helm, Joel Edgerton set to play the former flame, and Jude Law as her villain. Then the first day of shooting comes and Ramsay doesn't even show up, and the reason given is creative and contract problems. Apparently it's all gossip and slander at this point. Then Law decides to drop his role because the only reason he signed on was to work with Ramsay.

But the seats have since been filled: Gavin O'Connor (WARRIOR) is the new helmer and Bradley Cooper has recently come in to replace Law as the bad guy.

Cooper is in as, "Bishop, the man whose gang has shot up the estranged outlaw husband of a woman (Portman) who knows they are coming to rout her farm, because that husband has come home to heal. She turns to a former lover (Edgerton) for help."

Filming is now taking place in New Mexico. Bradley is said to come in at a later date to film his parts.

Cooper is taking on so many roles. He's like Nicolas Cage part 2. Hopefully his career doesn't flame out like Cage's did.

It took Nic Cage more than a couple of years to become the Nic Cage we know today.

Nice way to make lemonade out of lemons, Natalie. Kudos to Portman for trying to help female directors in their careers, but O'Connor's an inspired choice for this flick. Not as sure about Cooper playing a villain, but I'm willing to give him a look. Hope this film makes it to theatres.

Bradley Cooper is hot enough right now that his involvement is quite reassuring as far as getting the project going sooner rather than later.

I'm only mildly wary of him because I haven't seen Cooper play a serious villain (Wedding Crashers isn't serious). Both Edgerton and Law have done rugged outdoorsmen, but Cooper feels like a more inspired choice than people might think considering his filmography. But I still look forward to seeing what this thing looks like.

Zero interest

Before the female director and stale actors left the project I could care less about this movie.

However, suddenly a GOOD director is attached and GOOD actors are inserted to the uninspired lost roles - and man oh, man I'm INTERESTED in this movie!

Good casting

I thought Cooper was excellent in Silver Linings Playbook.
The Trainman, Portman would not be the first actress to become a diva, post-Oscar success, but Ramsey should have turned up and kicked her arse, Jim Sheridan had probs with Jake Gyllenhaal on Brothers, oh and Portman was in that film too.
What's up with that?

Unless you can prove Gyllenhaal and Portman are the same person, it looks like she has nothing to do with that story.

Glad Bradley Cooper is on board.

I don't know what it is though but Natalie Portman is rubbing me the wrong way recently. I just find it strange that female directors have been dropping out of movies she signs on to (that's including former 'Thor: The Dark World' helmer Patty Jenkins).

She was responsible for the hiring of both of them and they both had problems with other people in the production. She's the good girl in those stories.

I like it. Should be great to see him show his villainous side.

Oh hell yeah! Cooper saves the day. Can't wait to see him play a villain. If you haven't seen his Inside the Actors Studio episode definitely watch it. Very inspirational an you're garrunteed to become a fan
