Bradley Cooper drops out of 'Jane Got a Gun'

And another one bites the dust. EW has confirmed that Bradley Cooper is the latest big name to exit Jane Got a Gun, a western starring Natalie Portman in its title role. Cooper was set to play an outlaw who swears revenge against a rival gunslinger (Noah Emmerich) — a part he inherited after two successive leading men dropped out of the film.

Originally, Portman was to star opposite Michael Fassbender — but Fassbender abruptly left the project in early March. According to The Hollywood Reporter, his exit was motivated by scheduling conflicts; several delays had pushed back Jane‘s production start date, and Fassbender needed to be free to film X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is currently in production.

Fassbender was replaced by Jude Law, and Jane was scheduled to finally begin shooting on March 18. But original director Lynne Ramsay failed to show up for the first day of filming, indicating that she had quit the production — and prompting Law to exit the film as well.

'Hangover Part III' trailer: Chow -- ironically -- is into cock-fighting -- VIDEO

“When we get together, bad things happen and people get hurt…” “Yeah, that’s the point. It’s funny.”

The Wolfpack will run wild again on May 24 when The Hangover Part III arrives in theaters. We’ve known for some time that Alan (Zach Galifianakis) might need some psychological attention, especially following the death of his father. The new trailer finally explains the hows and whys that send the guys — minus Doug, who’s kidnapped! — south of the border in pursuit of the maniacal Chow (Ken Jeong), who happened to steal $21 million from a royally pissed off John Goodman. It could be worse: Think how bad it would’ve been for the guys if they crossed Goodman’s baddie on Shabbos!

Watch the clip below. But beware, chickens are the new tigers. READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: Jessica Chastain for 'Crimson Peak'; Plus, Bradley Cooper to replace Jude Law in Natalie Portman pic, more

• Guillermo del Toro is assembling quite the A-List cast for his gothic horror film Crimson Peak. Yesterday, we learned that Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness) had joined the cast, and news broke today that two-time Oscar-nominee Jessica Chastain is in final negotiations to star in the film. Del Toro produced Mama, which starred Chastain, but has never directed the Zero Dark Thirty star before. The project is the midst of a script re-write with Del Toro and Lucinda Coxon (The Heart of Me). Matthew Robbins (The Sugarland Express) wrote the original draft with Del Toro. [Variety]

• The trouble-plagued production for Jane Got a Gun may have finally gotten some good news. It looks like Oscar-nominee Bradley Cooper is set to take over for Jude Law, who left the project late last month, as did director Lynne Ramsay. Warrior director Gavin O’Connor has since taken over, and they’ve continued shooting what they can with Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton. [Deadline]

'The Place Beyond the Pines': Director Derek Cianfrance on shooting the motorcycle scene -- VIDEO

Director Derek Cianfrance’s films often focus on the emotional, like the intense relationship between Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams’ characters in 2010′s Blue Valentine. In his latest film, The Place Beyond the Pines, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and is being released in theaters this weekend, Gosling returns but in a harder-edged role.

In the scene below, which Cianfrance talks us through in accompanying commentary, Gosling’s character, Luke, is being chased through the woods by Ben Mendelsohn, who plays a mechanic with whom Luke later teams up to rob banks.

“It doesn’t always have to be about words; it doesn’t always have to be about talking,” Cianfrance says of the chase scene. Check out the exclusive clip and commentary below:

New 'Place Beyond the Pines' clips suggest this won't be a happy movie -- VIDEO

With Ryan Gosling partnering again with his Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance, anyone can guess that the resulting picture wouldn’t exactly be happy-go-lucky. The Place Beyond the Pines spans decades and explores fathers, sons, and the choices we make that influence our whole lives. “I’m attracted to making movies about family,” Cianfrance previously told EW. “Those movies have secrets and intimacy.”

The secrets, along with some doom and gloom, are on full display in three new clips from The Place Beyond the Pines, which also stars Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes. The first clip shows Luke (Gosling) and Romina (Mendes) meeting at a fair after time apart, and showcases all the awkwardness of running into someone from your past whom you thought you wouldn’t see again.

Casting Net: Johnny Depp commits to 'Black Mass' and Pfister's 'Transcendence'; Plus, Tom Hardy in PTSD film, and Bradley Cooper

Johnny Depp fans, get excited. The actor has committed to his next two projects: Wally Pfister’s sci-fi thriller Transcendence, and Barry Levinson’s Whitey Bulger biopic Black Mass, both of which he’d been circling for a while. Transcendence will be the directorial debut for Pfister, an Oscar-winning cinematographer (for Inception in 2011), who has been Christopher Nolan’s go-to since Memento. The details of the project remain sparse, but the logline teases that the film is about a scientist who has his brain uploaded into a computer. Depp will go straight from Transcendence to Black Mass, based on the true crime book Black Mass: The Irish Mob, The FBI and A Devil’s Deal by Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill. Depp will portray the real-life former Boston mob boss and FBI informant, Whitey Bulger, who is still very much alive. [Variety]

• Tom Hardy is set to develop and star in the post traumatic stress disorder drama Samarkand, about a British soldier attempting to readjust to society after serving in the Middle East. Photographer Greg Williams wrote the script with his brother Olly, and will make his feature debut directing the project. Williams directed Hardy in the short film Sergeant Slaughter, My Big Brother (available here) about a man (Hardy) who decides to run away to join the French Foreign League. [Deadline]

Best Actor nominee Bradley Cooper has committed to producing and starring in an English-language remake of the 2011 German film Kokowääh. He’s also reportedly considering whether or not to direct the project. The original film was directed by and starred Til Schweiger (Hugo Stiglitz in Inglorious Basterds) as a writer who discovers that he has an 8-year-old daughter. The film follows his work, his burgeoning relationship with his daughter (and her foster father), and his attempts to reconcile with his ex-girlfriend and writing partner. The script is currently undergoing a re-write. [Deadline]

Bradley Cooper moving forward with 'American Sniper' biopic

After the tragic shooting death of ex-Navy SEAL Chris Kyle this past week, Bradley Cooper is moving forward with American Sniper, a movie based on the autobiography of Kyle. Cooper bought the rights to American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History last spring, he told NPR’s Fresh Air yesterday.

In the wide-ranging interview (which you can listen to in full), Cooper discussed how he wanted to fast-track the project, which has obviously generated more public interest with recent events. “I couldn’t believe it. Jason Hall, who’s writing the script, called me an hour after it happened…,” Cooper explained about how he heard about the death. “The first draft was coming in this week, and Thursday I was at Walter Reed hospital meeting with veterans who have post-traumatic stress disorder, among many other ailments; and then all of a sudden I hear this thing and I just can’t believe it. This man has two children, and he is an advocate for putting guns back in veterans’ hands, as a way of therapy.” READ FULL STORY

'The Silver Linings Playbook' author talks movie adaptation: 'I think Jennifer Lawrence did an amazing job'

The Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick has had quite a turnaround from just a few short years ago, when he was writing The Silver Linings Playbook in his in-laws basement. He was unemployed, had sold his house, quit a tenured teaching position and was unsure what the next step of his life would be. “It was a dark time in my life, classic struggling artist on my last dollar,” Quick explained on the phone with EW. Now, the author  — who estimates he’s seen the film version of his first book seven times – is taking on Hollywood. He’s been to various SLP screenings, joined the cast at a taping of Katie, and is likely attending the Oscars himself Feb. 24. And he’s only just getting started in movies. His upcoming book, The Good Luck of Right Now, was just optioned by DreamWorks, and he’ll be an executive producer on the project.

Read on for an edited chat with Quick and get his thoughts on Bradley Cooper, mental illness and the changes between the book and film. READ FULL STORY

Oscars luncheon on-the-scene: Jennifer Lawrence, Ben Affleck, Hugh Jackman, and more

Before the 160 expected guests of honor could bite into their burrata arugula canapés and miso-marinated, pistachio-crusted sea bass fillets at the annual Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon in the Beverly Hilton ballroom on Monday, a handful of nominated actors and filmmakers dropped by the press room to talk about their celebrated projects, awards season experiences, people they’d like to work with, and big night fashion plans. There were moments of gratitude, plenty of jokes and even, in the case of Amy Adams, accidental musical accompaniment and spontaneous dancing.

Read on to see the best of what was said behind the scenes:
