Yet More Eyes Wide Shut Fun

Stanley Kubrick has now announced that he's decided to remove all scenes featuring Jennifer Jason Leigh in Eyes Wide Shut. Previously, he'd called her back to re-shoot every scene she appeared in. Now he will be re-shooting her role with Marie Richardson instead. He said that he wasn't using Leigh because of a "scheduling conflict" but described her scenes as a "cameo." This contradicts some reports, which said that Leigh's role in the movie was pivotal. Meanwhile, the shooting time for the movie gets ever nearer the 17 months record held by Lawrence of Arabia.
