In the mid-2000's, John Carpenter was planning on making a Die Hard-inspired prison action thriller titled Riot, in which a group of teenage criminals are brought into the worst jail in the country as part of the Scared Straight program. While they are there, the prisoners start a riot, kill all of the guards, and take the teenagers as hostages. But one of them manages to escape and after a prisoner who has spent years in the jail saves his life, the two of them have to run throughout the prison and hide from other inmates while trying to find some way to save the other teenagers. Carpenter wanted Nicolas Cage to star as the prisoner who saves one of the teens, but when Cage walked out on the project, that ended up killing any chance of the film ever being made.

Peter Berg served as a producer on Hell or High Water and Wind River, both written by Taylor Sheridan. Berg also served as an executive producer on Lars and the Real Girl.

After working on Insomnia, Christopher Nolan wrote a script for a Howard Hughes biopic that he considered to be one of the best things he's ever written. He hoped to direct it with Jim Carrey playing Hughes and Rob Reiner's Castle Rock Entertainment producing, but he reluctantly abandoned the project when it became apparent that Martin Scorsese was making his own Hughes biopic, The Aviator, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

For The Exorcist III, George C. Scott was cast as Lt. Kinderman since the actor who played him in the first film, Lee J. Cobb, passed away in 1976. When the first film's director William Friedkin directed the 1997 version of 12 Angry Men, Scott was cast as Juror #3, another role originally played by Lee J. Cobb.

Jean-Luc Godard and Alejandro Jodorowsky agree with Braden on Spielberg's merits.

While I like Jodorowsky (and dislike Godard), I have to say it's silly to think that he's ruining cinema when he revolutionized different genres.  Just because they don't agree with his vision doesn't mean he's ruining it.  I do think newer Spielberg has gone soft, but Schindler's List and Munich are some of the best films made.
goodbye!

I'll just say this: Cinema would not be the way it is today if films like Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, or Saving Private Ryan never existed.  Spielberg was a visionary and how he revolutionized the industry cannot be ignored.
Goodbye!

Didn't Jodorowsky direct that piece of crap The Holy Mountain? Yeah, I have zero interest in his opinions on anything.

Have not seen that one. All I know is that between Holy Mountain and Knight of Cups, I'm done with Tatum recommendations for a good long time.
