Playing the Field doing reshoots?

Multiple "test showings" of Playing the Field must have shown the filmmakers that their film still needed some work and reshoots are currently being done in Shreveport.

Hopefully the finished product will be all the better for it.

The Muse is getting good reviews for his work in Coriolanus and he doesn't want to follow that and his good performance in Machine Gun Preacher with a dud.  It looks like Mavericks will be released before Playing the Field. Wonder if this is due to an "underwhelming response" for the movie during the screenings or because they feel, with some reshoots, that it is strong enough to go head to head with the strong competition being released during the holidays 2012?

Optimist that I am, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it is the latter and not the former.  If Christmas 2011's sluggish box office is any  indication, the move is not a good one.

Perhaps they feel Mavericks is strong enough to garner more interest for a Butler movie by releasing it first?
