47 Ronin

The trouble with unnamed insider sources is that sometimes their information is unreliable. However, when there is trouble on a film set, budgetary issues, and multiple scheduling changes, the information from those insider sources may have some validity.

Last week we reported that those problems took a toll for 47 Ronin, and as a result Universal Pictures forced director Carl Erik Rinsch out of the editing process. But when a studio ousts a director just like that, sometimes it’s best to get the word from the actual person. Reports are now saying that Rinsch is still very much a part of the editing process and has not been fired by Universal.

Deadline was the first to report on Rinsch’s employment status and address some of the rumored issues that plagued the film. First they reported that Rinsch is busy “working side by side with the studio on the challenged Universal picture.” Also the reports of the budget ballooning over $200 million because of the multiple reshoots and scheduling changes have been greatly exaggerated.

The site was quick to point out that problems like these don’t always lead up to the aforementioned rumors of bloodbaths between a director and a studio. In fact, it happens more often than it is reported. Of course the multiple scheduling changes and reshoots did not help in any way. But Universal did schedule 47 Ronin to be released Christmas 2013, a date when the box office can produce solid numbers, and those reshoots do serve a purpose for the film.

But we won’t actually know if these problems affected the quality of 47 Ronin until we start to see some actual footage.
