Ewan McGregor Jumps From SON OF A GUN to JANE GOT A GUN

Simon de Bruyn, Contributing Writer
Ewan McGregor has just wrapped filming on Australian crime action-thriller Son of a Gun, and rather than get back home and chill out, he's opted to jump straight onto another project already in production. And it's not just any production but troubled western Jane Got a Gun, with McGregor taking over the villain role. Bradley Cooper and - before him - Jude Law had previously been cast to play the bad guy, so it seems the main idea behind casting this role was to cast against type. The film also stars Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton and is being directed by Gavin O'Connor, who directed Edgerton in Warrior.

If you've missed the saga surrounding this film, see the links below for comprehensive round-up of what's been going on. Plus I couldn't resist including this NSFW clip from Peep Show. I imagine each of the previous Jane Got a Gun actors left as they didn't get enough time with "gunny".

    I would see Ewan McGregor on a cereal box. He's a great actor, certainly deserving of a star on Hollywood's walk of fame! If anyone can pull off this picture with Portman, it will be Ewan, who can portray anyone so naturally. You cannot tell he's acting.

    I´m hoping this casting merry go around ends here.......is Portman that bad to work with, Mr Brown..?

    hahahhahahahha....yeah, who knows.....

    McGregor has played dubious characters before but a downright villain in a western....could be a interesting choice.
    Thanks for the info Mr Brown.
