Universal Takes Over Editing '47 Ronin' As Director Carl Erik Rinsch Removed; Studio Adds Love Scene, Dialogue & More
Jay-Z may have 99 problems, but you can bet he's glad "47 Ronin" ain't one. Universal's big budget samurai flick starring Keanu Reeves, Rinko Kikuchi and rounded out with a mostly Japanese cast has seen its problems displayed through ever changing release dates.

Whether it will hold or not remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain: director Carl Erik Rinsch's relationship with the movie is now over. The Wrap reports that following recent reshoots in London, Rinsch has been removed from the editing suite and Universal co-chairwoman Donna Langley is now supervising as the film gets cut.
