Jane Got a Gun has had a very, very troubled production — from the departure of director Lynn Ramsay to cast changes and release delays, the film started to feel like one long, unfortunate practical joke, and it was unclear if we’d actually ever see this film hit theaters. With the recent collapse of Relativity Media, the uncertainty only grew, but The Weinstein Co. has swept in to save Natalie Portman’s western and given it a 2016 release date…for now.
Danny Boyle has been teasing us with the promise of a Trainspotting sequel for years, to be based on Irvine Welsh’s novel Porno, itself a sequel to Welsh’s source material for Boyle’s original film. The director has talked up the sequel so much with no actual momentum that it hardly feels like a possibility, but Boyle is at it again, and this time he says the Trainspotting followup is his next movie.
Ewan McGregor has had some opinions about Star Wars: The Force Awakens — primarily, he’s had a bone to pick about that crossguard lightsaber, which he doesn’t think is very necessary for a good Jedi. But nitpicks aside, the actor is totally open to returning to the Star Wars franchise, you know, if Lucasfilm is into the idea.

It seems as though audiences aren’t the only ones taken with Disney’s new live action offerings, as the studio has been attracting some wonderful talent for their upcoming projects. So far, Beauty and the Beast has assembled a rather charming cast, including Emma Watson, Dan Stevens and Sir Ian McKellen. Disney has just added another charming name to that roster: Ewan McGregor.
By far, the most divisive element of the first ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ trailer was the debut of the new cruciform lightsaber. Some folks thought it looked totally cool, and others felt that it was an implausible and unrealistic weapon (as opposed to the regular lightsaber, which is totes plausible and realistic).
The new 'Mortdecai' trailer has all of the necessary elements to make us write it off completely: Johnny Depp doing a dumb voice, Johnny Depp with a dumb moustache, Johnny Depp wearing at least two stupid hats and well, lets be honest here, the mere presence of Johnny Depp in a 2014 movie. And yet, there's something about this movie that intrigues us and grabs our attention, despite our better judgment.
When ‘Jane Got a Gun’ finally arrives in theaters, the revisionist Western will look mighty different from the one that was originally conceived several years ago. It was first intended as a Lynne Ramsay film, but the ‘We Need to Talk About Kevin’ director reportedly quit the production on the first day of filming. She was eventually replaced by Gavin O’Connor (‘Warrior’), but before the dust settled much of the original cast (and even some of their replacements) had come and gone. Michael Fassbender signed on then departed, along with Bradley Cooper and Jude Law. The final lineup includes Ewan McGregor, Joel Edgerton, and Noah Emmerich, plus the film’s stalwart leading lady, Natalie Portman.
