Makes me wonder now if Fassy really dropped out because of scheduling conflicts or he got wind of whatever's going on behind the scenes.

There's so few proflic female directors in the industry, so when this happens, it makes them look bad since its such a crowd that that's trying to generate some growth. One person can be such an influence on a generation so this is just careless on her part.

Maybe Natalie can get Patty Jenkins? I know she wanted her for Thor 2.

That would be nice. But at this point, the production needs a director ASAP. I don't think someone like Jenkins will come on unless they're willing to jump in feet first to get the film made.

This is what I'm worried about. Maybe she has a great reason for dropping out but sexist jerks could use this as yet another reason not to allow female directors to well, direct. I'm kinda hoping they hire a female director to replace her to mitigate the damage.

I vote for Kimberly Pierce myself. She seems like a perfect fit for the material.

Interesting choice to replace Ramsey. Wish it was a female director to alleviate the bad buzz when Ramsey was a no-show.

I still can't wait to hear her side of the story because if she doesn't have an amazing excuse she is probably donzo in Hollywood.

I liked Warrior so sounds alright to me.

Yeah, I want to hear her side too because it's really just the producer's side that we've heard of (since they were the ones who talked to Deadline).

I wonder if anyone has even talked to her or heard from her. To just suddenly disappear is worrisome.

According to Deadline Jude Law just dropped out. This is officially a disaster.

Yikes. What an ego bust for O'Connor.

How could the movie be more entertaining than the behind the scenes mess?

Just release a doc about the movie falling apart, I'd go see that!

And called it How Jane Got Gunned Down (narrated by Morgan Freeman).

Brillaint title.

To be honest I'm not a fan of Portman so the only interest I had in the film lay with Fassy and although I like Law he wasn't enough to keep me interested in the project. Now I'm just completely caught up in the behind the scenes stuff.

Personally I think they should just cut their losses for now and come back in a year or so.

Yeah, I'd really like to know what made the director jump ship and now two of the leads.

I also hope they change the title. Janie's Got a Gun was a powerful and effective song about incestuous sexual abuse. Using it (or a slight variation of it) for a Western shootout film is cheap and lazy.

It'll be a disaster if Portman bails out. I'm sure they can find someone to replace Jude Law...

It kinda sucks that Law bailed since he and Portman are good friends and I actually thought that the reason he joined the movie so fast was because he was doing her a favor.

I don't see it that way. He's jumped aboard a sinking ship. It'd be crazy to expect no one else to abandon ship with all that's going on. I really don't think Law dropping out reflects on him.
