Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, Jeff Bridges eyed to replace Jude Law in troubled 'Jane Got a Gun'
When director Lynne Ramsay failed to show up to the set of the troubled western "Jane Got a Gun" on Monday, stars Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton and the 150-person crew were left stranded.
Helmer Gavin O'Connor ("Warrior") was quickly chosen as a replacement, but the film was dealt another crippling blow a few days later when co-star Jude Law also exited the film.
However, some big guns are being considered as last-minute replacements. According to the L.A. Times, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire and Oscar winner Jeff Bridges are all being eyed by O'Connor for the role.
Bridges is significantly older than the other two candidates, but recently proved his western mettle in "True Grit." Former "Spider-Man" Maguire starred in Ang Lee's "Ride With the Devil" in 1999, while Gyllenhaal recently got down-and-dirty in the contemporary cop drama "End of Watch."
Portman is still signed on as the lead in the film, in which she'll play a woman who desperately turns to an ex-lover (Edgerton) for help when her husband is chased down and cornered by bandits, who were to be led by Law.
Interestingly enough, Law himself came onboard the project only after original star Michael Fassbender withdrew, allegedly due to scheduling conflicts.
