Let’s be honest here. We aren’t sure if this Is the last major update when it comes to Jane Got a Gun or not. It seems perfectly plausible, but then nothing that’s happened in this film’s long and winding road to production – a production that is now two weeks in progress no less. The perfect time to be on the hunt for a lead actor for the film you just inherited. First it was Michael Fassbender. Then it was Jude Law. And then it wasn’t anybody.

And now
Deadline reports Bradley Cooper will replace Law as the film’s ruthless antagonist, who was originally supposed to be played by Joel Edgerton, who took on the protagonist role when Law came aboard. Law left following director Lynne Ramsey, who bailed due to production problems and led the producers to bring in Gavin O’Connor to replace her. It appears that Edgerton’s involvement and Natalie Portman’s role of Jane are the only things about this film that haven’t changed. But that doesn’t mean all changes are bad. Cooper was cast in an effort to find someone with Law’s international appeal, and no kidding, they accomplished their goal.

Cooper is one of the busiest guys in Hollywood these days, and while his films aren't always successful, his charisma and talent within them are ever-present, earning him an Academy Award nomination for his performance in David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook. He’s supposed to be currently shooting Russell’s next film, while The Place Beyond the Pines recently hit theaters. The Hangover III, of course, is coming in May. And he has no less than 439 films also attached to his name.

But considering how quickly he needs to jump into this film, it’s safe to say this one takes precedence over everything else. Jane Got a Gun is set for a 2014 premiere, at which point the producers will all collapse in a heap of relief.
