The drama on indie western 'Jane Got A Gun' has intensified, with the news that Jude Law has now exited the movie.

Director Lynne Ramsay controversially didn't turn up for her first day on the set of the film in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Producer Scott Steindorff was quick to lambast Ramsay, who had been key to the film's development, for her non-appearance, calling her decision 'insane'.

It then emerged that Gavin O'Connor, director of 'Warrior', had been drafted in to replace Ramsay.

Law left the production because he's signed on to work with Ramsay, and not with O'Connor.

Joel Edgerton, who worked with O'Connor on 'Warrior', is still attached to the film, as is Natalie Portman, who is also a producer.

Law himself had already been part of the merry-go-round, having been brought in to replace Michael Fassbender - who had left the picture after reportedly clashing with Ramsay.

After Ramsay failed to turn up to work on Monday, Steindorff said: “I have millions of dollars invested, we’re ready to shoot, we have a great script, crew and cast.

“I’m shocked and so disappointed someone would do this to 150 crew members who devoted so much time, energy, commitment and loyalty to a project, and then have the director not show up.

“It is insane somebody would do this to other people. I feel more for the crew and their families, but we are keeping the show going on, directors are flying in, and a replacement is imminent.”
