Earlier this year The Weinstein Company and Relativity Media pushed back the release of the Natalie Portman-led Western, ‘Jane Got a Gun,’ from its original August 29th, 2015 date to a February 20th, 2015 bow. Today we hear that studios have again delayed the release date for ‘Jane Got a Gun,’ now penciling it in for a September 4th, 2015 release.
‘Jane Got a Gun’ centers on Natalie Portman’s titular character, a woman whose outlaw husband (Noah Emmerich) returns home riddled with bullet wounds and barely alive, betrayed by criminal confederates that are hot on his heels. When her husband’s gang eventually tracks him down to finish the job, she is forced to reach out to an ex-lover and ask if he will help defend her farm. Joel Edgerton plays the ex-lover while Ewan McGregor plays the leader of the gang that lays siege to the homestead.
