The big-screen version of the popular 1970s TV show was set to start in November, but has now been put on hold as the film is reworked.
Director Gurinder Chadha will make a final decision on whether or not she will stay on board to direct as soon as the new cast comes together.
Filmmakers now hope to make the film for substantially less than its original $65 million budget and have been approaching less well-known actors with lower salary demands.
Producers plan to recast and begin shooting as early as January.
