Creative differences with the producers and execs led to the decision and now writer-producer Alex Garland is overseeing the editing. The L.A. Times blog said that Garland may seek a co-director credit. His fellow producers Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich are heavily involved the post decision-making as well, but one source said that Travis has participated in some of the editing via the Internet. Reshoots are a possibility and it is not known who would helm them if they are done.
