The Natalie Portman film Jane Got a Gun had faced numerous issues during the course of its filming, including changes in casts, conflicts among the team and conflicts in release dates. It has been in the works since 2012 but only managed to have a final international release date this year. Now that it is finally here, however, the upcoming French premiere of the film is going to be rescheduled following the gruesome Paris terror attacks.

This means Portman and the rest of the cast will have to wait for another release date again before their film can make it to the theaters. The film had been rescheduled several times before. Jane Got a Gun was supposed to debut on November 25 but Mars Distribution, the company that will be distributing the film in France, announced on Monday that the film will be moved to a later date. Likewise, film screenings and press interviews that were reportedly scheduled on Sunday and Monday were pushed back.
