Bradley Cooper is the latest player to leave trouble western 'Jane Got a Gun'
The seemingly never-ending saga of "Jane Got a Gun" continues, and Bradley Cooper is the latest player to walk away from the troubled production.
If you'll recall, the western was originally set to star Natalie Portman, Joel Edgerton and Michael Fassbender, with Lynne Ramsey directing.
Fassbender bailed from the project early on after scheduling conflicts arose, and was replaced by Jude Law. On the very first day of shooting, Ramsey exited the film, for reasons unknown. Her exit led to the departure of Law, who stated that the whole reason he signed on was to work with Ramsey. She was quickly replaced by "Warrior" director Gavin O'Connor, and shooting resumed.
Portman and O'Connor then scoured the A-list for Law's replacement and settled on a big name: Bradley Cooper, hot off his Oscar nomination for "Silver Linings Playbook."
Now, however, Cooper is out, once again citing scheduling conflicts, according to The Hollywood Reporter. With "The Hangover Part II" hitting theaters soon, Cooper is currently filming "American Hustle," from his "Silver" director David O. Russell. Cooper will also star in Steven Spielberg's upcoming "American Sniper," also according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Now, "Jane Got a Gun" is stuck without a leading man well into the shoot. On the bright side, Coper wasn't scheduled to begin shooting his scenes until June, so there's still time to find another actor -- if anyone dares.
