Studio bosses have denied forcing Guy Ritchie to re-shoot five weeks worth of filming on his forthcoming SHERLOCK HOLMES movie.
The British director was reportedly left fuming after being ordered to scrap weeks worth of footage on his super sleuth film, which stars Robert Downey Jr. as the iconic detective.
British tabloid The Sun reported executives at Warner Bros. - the studio in charge of the film's production - had heavily criticised the moviemaker's first takes.
But representatives for Warner Bros are vehemently denying the reports - insisting they are "very pleased" with the work completed on the film so far.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the studio writes, "It is not true that Warner Bros. has asked for any reshoots on Sherlock Holmes. The inserts and pickup shots being completed next week, which have long been part of the schedule, do not involve any cast, and are a standard part of filmmaking."
"It is still early in the production process, and the studio has not yet seen the movie. Both Warner Bros. and Guy Ritchie are very pleased with the footage they have seen thus far."
