Caleb Deschanel was the original cinematographer for Jan de Bont's remake of The Haunting, but during filming, the two clashed over how the film should look. At the end of the first week of shooting, de Bont fired Deschanel and replaced him with Karl Walter Lindenlaub.

Lynne Ramsay was originally attached to direct Jane Got a Gun, but she dropped out on the first day of filming. Ramsay cited creative differences and contract issues, while the studio claims that she was drunk, disruptive, and abusive to the cast and crew, and had slacked off on some of the duties in her contract.

Bruce Willis and composer Michael Kamen took over production on The Last Boy Scout, making significant changes to Shane Black's script and forcing director Tony Scott to film many scenes that he didn't like under threat of being fired from production. Even after all of that, Kamen still hated the film. Everyone else involved also had a miserable time making the film, with producer Joel Silver naming it one of the worst experiences of his life.

When Val Kilmer was behaving like a prima donna during the filming of The Island of Dr. Moreau, director John Frankenheimer once replied to him, "I don't give a fuck. Get off my set!"

During production on Chappie, co-star Ninja, of Die Antwoord, refused to sit next to other cast members out of a sense of superiority, attempted to tell his fellow cast members how to do their scenes, sexually harassed female crew members and sent them explicit photos of himself, and had to be written out of at least one scene because Hugh Jackman couldn't stand him. After that, director Neill Blomkamp refused to ever work with him again.

It's actually Chappie.  Not Chappue.  Chappie.

RZA's original first cut of The Man with the Iron Fists was four hours long, with him suggesting to split the film into two like Kill Bill. Producer and co-writer Eli Roth wasn’t a fan of the idea, and edited the movie down to 96 minutes, excising some of the graphic content in order for the film to get an R rating. RZA wasn’t happy with this, and stormed out of the editing room, not returning for two weeks.

John Hughes wrote the script for The Breakfast Club in two days, and also wrote Ferris Bueller's Day Off in the same amount of time.

Robert Downey, Jr. found working with John Hughes on Weird Science so aggravating that he took a shit on the floor of co-star Kelly LeBrock's trailer out of spite.

Pierce Brosnan was keen to get Brett Ratner to direct Die Another Day, but Ratner was rejected by the producers, who didn't like any of his work. Brosnan would later get his chance to work with Ratner on the 2004 film After the Sunset.

Given that he apparently wanted to cast that guy as the Elysium's lead (which he refused), then offered the role to Eminem, and only then to Matt Damon, Blomkamp really has only himself to blame.

I just don't think he would have ever fit as a protagonist of that particular script; a lot more so than that Ninja, who would've been dumb enough to fit in. In particular, I like to think his version of the character (what was that guy's name again?) would not have gone back to that factory in the first place, much less had to get magic terminal cancer from it before finally deciding to break the system.

Honestly, a version of the film where he was the lead would have been a lot different. Not sure if it would have been better, but it certainly would be a lot more memorable.
