Hopefully the third time’s the charm. Relativity again has delayed the release for the Natalie Portman Western Jane Got A Gun. The troubled production now is slated to bow September 4, more than half a year later than its previous February 20 date. The pic, which has been through three bad guys, two directors and one lawsuit, initially had been scheduled to release this summer. As of now, it’s only up against Sony/Columbia comedy Kitchen Sink on the new slot.
Oscar winner Portman plays Jane Hammond, who has built a new life with her husband Bill “Ham” Hammond (Noah Emmerich) after being tormented by ultraviolent outlaw gang the Bishop Boys. She finds herself in the gang’s cross-hairs once again when Ham stumbles home riddled with bullets after dueling with the Boys and their relentless mastermind Colin (Ewan McGregor, who replaced Bradley Cooper, who had replaced Jude Law). With the vengeful crew hot on Ham’s trail, Jane has nowhere to turn but to her former fiancé Dan Frost (Joel Edgerton) for help in defending her family against certain mayhem.
