Saruman being in the movie fits with the intent to include what happened when
Gandalf leaves the Dwarves and Bilbo at the borders of Mirkwood to attack Dol Guldur. The White Council confrontation with Sauron (The Necromancer) is heavily implied by the book -- it essentially happens "off screen" -- so including it in the film isn't all that different than including the scenes in which the Ents attack Orthanc in The Two Towers (an event never explicitly described in the book, even though we see it happen on screen in the movie). Since Saruman was, at that time, the leader of the White Council, it makes perfect sense to include him.
