Pity Disney likely won't allow the original cut to be released alongside the theatrical on home video at least so people could have judged for themselves if the reshoots were a smart idea or not. I believe Tracy Letts understandably has expressed disappointment with the changes, and the trailer makes it look very dull.

Looks way too twisty and derivative to keep my attention. Seems more and more people use big-name casts to cover up any deficiencies in the story-telling. But it's always been that way too.

Julianne Moore character name is Jane Russell... which weirdly enough is also Jennifer Jason Leigh character name.

Not too weird considering what the trailer gives away

Danny Elfman replaced them, presumably because Watchmen took up too much of their schedule.
Splendid! Elfman will write actual MUSIC for this.

Never having read the novel this seems like one of the desperate attempts to change the ending after the roasted test audiences scores.
SpoilerShow
Didn't the ending of the novel have Amy Adams character dying while going after the son she has an affair with?

Netflix to acquire this from Disney, who among other considerations are apparently just not happy with it
