In Roger Avary's original screenplay for the Silent Hill film, there were only female characters. After the script was submitted to the studio, it was returned to director Christophe Gans with a memo saying "There are no men!" Sean Bean's character Christopher Da Silva, who was only supposed to appear at the beginning and ending of the film, had his role expanded upon, along with the character of Thomas Gucci being added into the story, and the script was approved.
Everything is terrible.

Jonathan Liebesman was originally on the shortlist to direct the Michael Bay-produced remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but he was then hired by Sony to direct Darkness Falls, so the one who got the job was Marcus Nispel. Liebesman had such a miserable time making Darkness Falls that he considered quitting filmmaking until Bay himself convinced him not to and he was then hired to direct The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning.

Another Platinum Dunes horror film Jonathan Liebesman was on the shortlist for was the remake of Friday the 13th. He was originally in negotiations to direct, with Mark Wheaton writing the script, but the company decided to hire Marcus Nispel instead, with Damian Shannon & Mark Swift also hired as new writers.

Rob Zombie was considered to direct the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. He got a call from his agent asking him if he wanted the job, but he immediately refused, as he was a fan of the original and thought being involved in a remake would make him look bad.

Also considered to direct the remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th, as well as the remake of The Amityville Horror, was Samuel Bayer, but he declined. Michael Bay then approached him twice to direct the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, but he turned the offers down. It was only when he received a long e-mail from Bay, who said that taking the job would open career opportunities up for him, that he agreed to direct.

A remake of The Monster Squad was in development back in 2010, with Mark & Brian Gunn writing the script, Michael Bay producing through Platinum Dunes, and Rob Cohen, one of the producers of the original, wanting to direct. In 2014, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller confirmed the project was cancelled.

Thanks for including this part. I thought you might have been referring to wrestling legend Bob Dylan.
