Jude Law Decides to Quit Jane Got a Gun, Too

Jude Law attends the 'Effet Secondaires' ('Side Effects') Premiere at UGC Cine Cite des Halles on March 7, 2013 in Paris, France.

Well, Jane Got a Gun is just jinxed. Jinxes are real, and it’s jinxed. First, Fassbender departed his co-starring role mere weeks before shooting was to start. Second, Lynne Ramsay, the film’s director, just didn’t show up for work on the first day of production. Now today, when it seemed like the ship would be righted with the hiring of a new director (Gavin O’Connor), Jude Law, the actor that was hired when Fassbender left, also decided to leave the project. Deadline reports Law signed on to work with Ramsay, so after she left, he chose to step down. Someone just needs to take this film out back and put it out of its misery. But who has a gun? Jane!
