Natalie Portman, Jude Law

Another one bites the dust.

In the wake of Lynne Ramsay backing out of helming the Western drama Jane Got a Gun (only to be quickly replaced by Warrior director Gavin O'Connor), it appears somebody else has left the Natalie Portman-Jude Law project.

Namely, Jude Law.

According to Deadline, the Oscar-nominated actor has decided to walk away "because he signed on to work with Ramsay."

This latest shake-up has, once again, postponed shooting. The first day of production had been scheduled for March 18, the same day Ramsay was a no-show.

The loss of Law also comes on the heels of another original castmember, Michael Fassbender, exiting a few weeks earlier. He was later replaced by Joel Edgerton, who worked with, yep, O'Connor on Warrior.
