Tower Heist originally started as a 2005 film concept from producer and co-star Eddie Murphy in which he would lead an ensemble black comedian cast as a group of disgruntled employees who would rob Donald Trump and the Trump Tower, affectionately titled Trump Heist. Aside from Murphy himself, the cast included Chris Tucker, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Hart, Tracy Morgan, and Martin Lawrence, and at one point, the latter three were swapped with Chris Rock.

Eric Roth wrote the original screenplay for The Cat in the Hat, which was more family-friendly and faithful to the book, but it was rewritten by Alec Berg, David Mandel & Jeff Schaeffer after Universal decided it needed more adult content in order to recapture the success of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Roth wasn't given a screenplay credit in the finished film.
I thought this said Eli Roth.
That would have made a better Cat in the Hat film.

During post-production on The Terminator, producer John Daly tried to shorten the film by insisting it end when the truck the Terminator is driving blows up, eliminating the whole finale with the now-skeletal Terminator chasing Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese through the factory. Writer and director James Cameron physically threw Daly out of the editing suite.

Wes Craven was initially in talks to direct Beetlejuice, but when the producers got a call from former Disney studio chief Jeffrey Katzenberg, who told them, "Wes Craven can't do comedy," they said to Craven, "We don't want you anymore." When Craven called Katzeneberg up and asked why he did this, Katzenberg responded, "You know, you're established in the [horror] genre and one of the great filmmakers, but I was just stating my honest opinion."

Cliff DeYoung was Jim Sharman's original choice to play Brad Majors in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but DeYoung was starring in the television series Sunshine in California and was unable to be in the film, so Barry Bostwick was cast instead. Upon learning that Barry Bostwick was unable to return as Brad in the sequel Shock Treatment, Sharman tracked down DeYoung and gave him the role.

According to Greg Sestero, Tommy Wiseau submitted The Room to Paramount, hoping to get them as the film's distributor. Usually, it takes about two weeks to get a reply. The film was rejected within 24 hours.

According to Juliette Danielle, on the set of The Room, when Tommy Wiseau said the line "In a few minutes, bitch," everyone on the set began laughing at him. Wiseau came out of the bathroom and demanded to know what was so funny.

That's actually pretty sad.

I feel bad for Tommy sometimes.  The guy tried to make a work of art and people just trashed it and even tried to rationalize it by saying the entire film was a scam made for the Russian mob.

When Greg Sestero had to call Dan Janjigian to tell him that they were going to reshoot his scenes for The Room, Janjigian's response upon picking up the phone was, "Did Tommy blow up the studio yet?"

Paul Greengrass was once attached to direct Watchmen. His idea was to have the film set in the post-9/11 world in contrast to the graphic novelís Cold War setting.
