Michael Fassbender Exits Natalie Portman's 'Jane Got a Gun' (Exclusive) 6:39 PM PDT 3/11/2013 by Borys Kit (THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER)

Jude Law now will play the villain as Joel Edgerton shifts to the hero role in the high-profile Western.

Michael Fassbender, who was to have played the male lead in the Natalie Portman-led Western, has exited the movie, while Joel Edgerton, who was on board to play the villain, will step into the hero role.

Jude Law, in the meantime, has signed on for the villain, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

The moves come a couple weeks before the start of shooting in New Mexico. Sources say the actor rotation came about due to Fassbender's schedule conflict with his upcoming shoot in Montreal for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Gun has been pushed back several times and now is scheduled to begin filming in April.
