Wow, this is unreal. Monday was the first day of production on Jane Got A Gun and director Lynne Ramsay was a no show. Producer and financier of the film, Scott Steindorff, has released a statement.
“I have millions of dollars invested, we’re ready to shoot, we have a great script, crew and cast,” Steindorff told Deadline. “I’m shocked and so disappointed someone would do this to 150 crew members who devoted so much time, energy, commitment and loyalty to a project, and then have the director not show up. It is insane somebody would do this to other people. I feel more for the crew and their families, but we are keeping the show going on, directors are flying in, and a replacement is imminent.”
So the production will continue but what a blow. Really in shock right now, Deadline Hollywood has the scoop and they can’t recall something like this ever happening before.
Let’s just hope the draw of Natalie, Edgerton and Jude Law can entice someone talented to the project on such short notice.
