As funny as it is, now that the film is shooting with a new director, when does he get credit in the thread title?

And now Bradley Cooper has bailed too. How will they find a way to blame this on Lynne Ramsay?

Too bad they're not doing a simultaneous Godard-like quasi-documentary on all this. That, I would definitely watch.

The Weinsteins picked this up at Relativity's fire sale, and will quietly dump it into theaters at the end of January.

They must have hired the best trailer guy in Hollywood, because the trailer is not half bad.

Three years later, Not Lynne Ramsay's film has -- well, escaped seems more apt than released. The Weinsteins quietly unloaded it today, but did not screen it for critics. Here's Glenn Kenny's shrug in The New York Times.

There has been quite some marketing done in France, including Portman doing various interviews, notably on the national 2nd channel evening news.

We Need to Talk About Kevin was a success, but it had taken five years to get from script to set, and followed a time where she had been asked to write and direct the film of The Lovely Bones, only to be dropped in favour of Peter Jackson. Anyway, after Kevin, she was sent the script of a western, Jane Got a Gun, written by 22-year-old novice, Brian Duffield. She loved it – “super-dark, gritty, right up my alley” – despite the fact that she usually works with her own writing. Finance was secured, actors were cast – including Natalie Portman and Jude Law (“I was so involved, I’d seen every extra”) – and she learned how to film horses. Everything was ready. But on the first day of filming, Ramsay didn’t turn up. She walked out, never to return.
