"Warrior" director Gavin O'Connor has stepped in to replace the absent Lynne Ramsay on the set of the western "Jane Got A Gun".
Ramsey ("We Need To Talk About Kevin") failed to show on the first day of shooting in Sante Fe, and so the producers have scrambled to quickly find a new helmer to keep the picture from falling apart.
They scored it with O'Connor who is closing a deal that will see him get the picture back underway by Thursday.
While actors Portman, Joel Edgerton and Rodrigo Santoro are staying onboard, actor Jude Law has formally withdrawn from the film. Law's main reason for jumping onboard recently was to work with Ramsey.
