In an early script for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the titular Turtles and Splinter were aliens from Dimension X, Shredder is a government agent named Colonel Schrader who's secretly an alien who can grow blades from his body, the Foot Clan is now an elite Black Ops unit led by Schrader called the Foot, Casey Jones is an 18-year-old security guard and amateur ice hockey player who finds the Turtles and is the focus of the film, April is also 18 and is having relationship troubles with Casey because she is moving to New York City due to an internship at CBS, Raphael is the comic relief instead of Michelangelo, and Michelangelo falls in love with a turtle woman from his homeworld. Due to fan outrage, Evan Daugherty, Darius Jackson, and Jacob Sullivan were brought onboard to do an overhaul of the script, with only Appelbaum, Nemec, and Daugherty getting screenplay credit in the finished film.

William Fichtner's character from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Eric Sacks, was originally intended to be the Shredder, with the film's teaser trailer confirming this. However, due to outrage from fans as Sacks was a white American while the Shredder was Japanese in all other incarnations, the idea was abandoned and reshoots were ordered to make the Shredder authentically Japanese and change Sacks' character to be the Shtedder's second-in-command.

After the successes of Superbad and Pineapple Express, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg toyed with the idea of making a crossover sequel that would team up McLovin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) with Saul Silver (James Franco). However, nothing came of this.

Seth Rogen was considered for the role of Dr. Adrian Helmsley in the Roland Emmerich film 2012. The role would eventually go to Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Nicolas Cage was originally cast as the villain Chudnofsky in The Green Hornet, but dropped out and was replaced by Christoph Waltz. Cage wanted to make the character more than just a typical generic action villain but also intended to play him with a Jamaican accent, much to director Michel Gondry's dismay.

Pretty much the only thing I remember about that film is how horrible of a villain he ultimately was. It was very nearly so-bad-it's-good...but somehow, Waltz even managed to make his character's delivery of a horrific rehearsed catchphrase appear dull.

Tom O'Connor's original screenplay for The Hitman's Bodyguard, which was written as a straight action film, was radically changed eight weeks before filming began. O'Connor, along with an uncredited Mark L. Smith, performed a frantic two-week rewrite that added more comedic elements into the story. The producers saw the potential in cackling chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, so they ordered the rewrites in order for the script to accommodate the actors.

Also, if you look closely at this poster, Mark L. Smith is given writing credit alongside O'Connor, yet in the actual film, O'Connor is given sole writing credit.

Two months after Stephen King's Cell was published, Dimension Films acquired the rights to the novel and Eli Roth was set to direct, with Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski writing the screenplay. However, they exited the project in 2009 due to creative differences with the studio.

Nicolas Cage objected to the criticism that The Wicker Man was unintentionally funny, saying that he and writer/director Neil LaBute knowingly made the film as an absurdist black comedy and that it should have been seen and judged as such.

Disney was originally set to release Star Wars: The Force Awakens in May of 2015, but director J.J. Abrams wanted the film to be delayed a full year in order to perfect the story. Disney, however, needed the film to be released at the right time for the purposes of profit and earning reports. When Lucasfilm took Abrams' side, they all eventually agreed on a December 18, 2015 release date as a compromise.

The Lazarus Effect was originally scripted by writer Luke Dawson as a found-footage film, with Radio Silence considered to direct. However, it was later decided that the found-footage aspect would be abandoned in favor of a more traditional approach to the material, so Jeremy Slater was hired to rewrite the script.
