Michael Fassbender leaves Natalie Portman's Jane Got A Gun; Jude Law signs on as the villain

Fassbender and Law

Production on the Western JANE GOT A GUN has been pushed back several times and it looks like it has happened again due to a casting shuffle.

THR is reporting that Michael Fassbender has dropped out of JANE GOT A GUN. Fassbender would have played Natalie Portman's ex-lover in the Western, but he had to leave the film due to a schedule conflict with his upcoming shoot for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.

Joel Edgerton, who had previously signed on as the film's villain, will take over Fassbender's role and Jude Law has agreed to be the new villain in the movie.

JANE GOT A GUN follows: 

A woman whose outlaw husband returns home riddled with bullet wounds and barely alive. When her husband’s gang eventually tracks him down to finish the job, she is forced to reach out to an ex-lover and ask if he will help defend her farm.

While it's disappointing that Michael Fassbender has left JANE GOT A GUN I am glad it will give Jude Law the opportunity to play a villain again. He's an excellent addition to the cast and I can't wait to see him chewing up the scenery.

Filming for JANE GOT A GUN was scheduled to start in a couple of weeks in New Mexico but due to the casting change will now start in April.

Extra Tidbit: Jude Law's first scene in ROAD TO PERDITION is one of my favorite character introductions ever in a film.

Nice

My friend just got cast for this movie recently. He's going to play a villain as well. Interest in this film has been raised a bit for me now.

I may be wrong...

But a lot of sites are saying that Jude Law is playing the husband of Natalie Portman's character. This is probably false though, as I see different things everywhere.

Damn I was looking forward to seeing Fassbender in a western. But it still has Edgerton and now Law, so I'm happy.

It's too bad he dropped out but Fassbender is one busy guy. Consider Days of Future Past will probably take up most of his schedule this summer.

And both would be PERFECT villains for an upcoming Bond... As well as Anthony Hopkins...
IMO

It sucks that he dropped out, but I'm a huge fan of Jude Law and love when he plays the villain. So there is a silver linings now since Law has been cast.

Movie sounds great with a terrific cast.
