I don't really know if this is good news or bad news. Sounds like Universal is now making an entirely different movie than Mr Rinsch had in mind. Difference between artistic view vs financial view?

Release date: December 25th 2013.
Conflict between Universal Pictures and director Carl Rinsch. The article says that Universal has been monitoring Rinsch's post-prduction process very closely and....
The new version will be more focused on Mr Reeves as the lead character rather than on the samurai ensemble.
The re-shoot will be about one of the key scenes late in the film. I have read the script earlier and I think I know what it is.
I cannot say if it is for better or for worse in artistic sense but I do believe the financial side will be more secure this way. At the same time, I dislike the idea of putting a director in a short leash.
It will be filmed in London facilities during late August- early September 2012. Budget $170 mio will be $200 mio.
Che sara, sara.
