After a couple of bumps in the road,  indie western “Jane Got A Gun” looks to be back on track with Bradley Cooper in talks to join the cast.

Cooper would be replacing Jude Law, who fell out after learning that the film’s original director, Lynne Ramsay, dropped out of the project.

The pic stars Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton with Gavin O’Connor helming.

“Gun,” penned by Brian Duffield, follows a woman who asks an ex-lover for help in order to save her outlaw husband from a gang which is out to kill him.  Joel Edgerton plays the ex-lover while Cooper would play the leader of the gang.

Pic will mark the first film for Scott Steindorff’s Scott Pictures. Producers are Steindorff, Aleen KeshishianTerry Dougas and Portman.

Several weeks ago, it seemed like the film was falling apart after Michael Fassbender also departed due to scheduling conflicts. »
