During the credits I saw that Stuart Baird was an Exec Producer of the film. I read on IMDB that he did uncredited editing in order to get the director's job of Nem.
Baird did emergency, last-minute editing jobs on Tomb Raider and Mission: Impossible 2, both of which went on to make bucketloads of money, so Paramount told him that he would get the director's chair on an upcoming high-profile film as a way of saying thank you.

And that high-profile film wound up being Nemesis.
