Ramsay was a no show on the first day of production scheduled for /director-lynne-ramsay-abandons-jane-got-a-gun-on-first-day-of-shooting/earlier this week. Her abrupt departure left the shoot in a frantic search for a new director. She apparently fled without notice after a week of clashing with producer Scott Steindorff. It is not known what the fight was over.
When it was clear that Lynne Ramsay was not returning to work, producers Steindorff, Aleen Keshishian, Terry Dougas and Natalie Portman, who also stars in the film, hurried to find a replacement, which led them to Warrior and Tumbleweeds director Gavin O'Connor, who most recently directed The Americans: Pilot for FX.
Filming is expected to start as early as Thursday morning.
