Here’s what’s happening today in pop culture:

• Gavin O’Connor (“Warrior”) will direct Natalie Portman’s indie Western “Jane Got a Gun,” and may start filming as early as Thursday — after the original director, Lynne Ramsay (“We Need to Talk About Kevin”) quit abruptly by not showing up for the first day of shooting Monday.

• “Mad Men” co-stars Vincent Kartheiser (who plays cad Pete Campbell) and Alexis Bledel (who’s also a veteran of “Gilmore Girls” and “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”) are engaged. [Us Weekly]
