Jake Gyllenhaal is one of the actors in the frame to replace Jude Law in Jane Got A Gun.
The Sherlock Holmes star is reported to have pulled out of the Western just as filming was due to begin, shortly after director Lynne Ramsay was a no-show on set.
The LA Times reports that a replacement for Jude is now being sought, with the End Of Watch star, Tobey Maguire and Jeff Bridges among the names being considered for the role.
Natalie Portman has already been cast as a woman who runs away from her villainous outlaw husband (previously played by Jude) and is forced to team up with an ex-boyfriend - played by Joel Edgerton - to protect her family.
Warrior director Gavin O'Connor was quickly brought in to replace Lynne, who has not commented on her sudden departure.
