It appears the one-time train wreck that is Jane Got a Gun might actually happen, after losing actors and its director. Deadline reports that Noah Emmerich has been cast to play Natalie Portman's husband. (Just a quick note: Emmerich is seventeen years older than Portman.) The movie centers on Portman hiring her ex (Joel Edgerton) to help her and her husband protect their farm from Bradley Cooper's gang. Okay, sure, that sounds like a movie, assuming everyone doesn't quit by week's end.
