Maybe that's it. Brad Pitt was very good though.

It's sounds like the script needed some reworking and they are still working on it. Apparently, filming has already started and there has been no official casting news yet. All of that is a bit worrying.
From what I gather, the filming aspect is pretty standard for a big budget movie. Usually second unit stuff with stunts and/or scenery.

I felt like that movie took every single weak/ad point of Jackson's adaptations and put them on steroids.
