Law to portray bad guy in Western

Jude Law will reportedly play the bad guy in Jane Got A Gun

Jude Law is to play a villain in Lynne Ramsay's Western Jane Got A Gun.

The Sherlock Holmes star has apparently joined the cast, which is led by Natalie Portman, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Michael Fassbender has reportedly changed his mind about starring as the male lead, because the film's production clashes with his schedule on X-Men: Days Of Future Past, so Joel Edgerton will take over his role.

Oscar winner Natalie is already on board to play the titular character, who runs away from her outlaw husband (Jude) and is forced to team up with an ex-boyfriend - Joel's character - to protect her family.

We Need To Talk About Kevin filmmaker Lynne will direct from a script written by Brian Duffield.

Production is expected to begin in April.

Jude, currently starring in Steven Soderbergh's Side Effects, has been filming Dom Hemingway, in which he plays the petty criminal.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
