‘Jane Got a Gun’ Gets New 2016 Release Date Jane Got a Gun, starring Natalie Portman, is a western thriller about a woman defending herself and her home from violent attack, but the film itself seems like it has been a lot more vulnerable than Jane herself. Now, after a significant delay — the film shot in 2013 — there’s finally a Jane Got a Gun release date that might stick, as the film is on the Weinstein Company calendar for February 2016. Jane’s problems go all the way back to the film’s pre-production, when original co-star Michael Fassbender had to leave the production.
