Gus Van Sant was hoping to get the job of directing the two-part The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn film, but he ended up fumbling his audition. Bill Condon was later hired to direct.

Martin Brest's original cut of Gigli was 160 minutes long and was a very dark and violent black comedy, with Christopher Walken having a larger role than in the theatrical cut and the title character being killed off at the end. When the film was received poorly by preview audiences at test screenings, it went through an assortment of rewrites until the real-life romance between stars Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez came one of the biggest celebrity stories of 2002. Sony and Columbia Pictures, wanting to cash in on the media craze, forced Brest into removing forty minutes of footage and altering many sequences to make the film a romantic comedy while retaining the crime elements. With rewrites and reshoots, the movie's budget ballooned from $54 million to $75.6 million.

Prior to King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Warner Bros. have tried numerous times to get a new King Arthur film off the ground, such as a remake of John Boorman's Excalibur from director Bryan Singer, a reimagining from Trainspotting scribe John Hodge that was based on a treatment by comic book writer Warren Ellis, and Arthur & Lancelot, which was set to be written and directed by David Dobkin and produced by Steven Soderbergh, with Kit Harington as Arthur, Joel Kinnaman as Lancelot, Gary Oldman as Merlin, and Marion Cotillard as Morgana.

It wasn't until 2014 when Warner Bros. picked up a new pitch by Edge of Tomorrow co-writer Joby Harold, who envisioned turning King Arthur into a six-film shared universe franchise, with separate projects for Arthur, Lancelot, and additional characters, who would all eventually come together in their own Avengers-style shared film. That same year, Warner Bros. approached Guy Ritchie to direct. He jumped at the chance, having previously been attached to direct Hodge's screenplay, but Warner Bros. reportedly began drifting away from Harold’s initial fantastical vision for the franchise. Instead, they forced Harold, Ritchie, and Lionel Wigram to fold in elements from the other unproduced King Arthur screenplays into theirs. Dobkin got a screen story credit in the finished film along with an executive producer credit, while Hodge, Singer, and Ellis went uncredited.

David Ayer's original cut of Sabotage was over three hours long and had much more focus on the mystery aspect. However, despite him previously delivering them a smash hit with End of Watch, Open Road Films forced him to cut it down to 110 minutes to make it more of a fast-paced action film. Not only was much of the mystery aspect cut out, but so was a subplot involving Olivia Williams' character Caroline Brentwood trying to nail an abusive father who has killed his young daughter.

The film's original ending was also completely different than in the final cut. The original ending had Mireille Enos' character Lizzy being apprehended and confessing to Brentwood and Arnold Schwarzenegger's character Breacher that she was responsible for the kidnapping, torture, and murders of Breacher's family and that she sold him out to Bruio. Breacher shoots Lizzy before she can reveal more and Brentwood becomes aware that Breacher is behind the killings. Breacher slips away undetected. Brentwood and her partner Jackson (Harold Perrineau) then head to the lake to retrieve the money. Breacher shows up, stabs Jackson, and begins fighting Brentwood in the water.

Ayer filmed two versions of this ending. In the first, Brentwood escapes and Breacher is confronted by two police cars when he tries to leave with the money. Breacher kill the cops and prepares to flee in one of the cars. Then, Brentwood appears and asks him why he killed his team. He tells her that they wouldn't let him find and kill the people who killed his family, who he knew he could get. She then shoots him when he tries to go for his gun. In the second, when Brentwood asks, Breacher tells her that a member of his team betrayed him and one of them was responsible for selling his family to the cartel for money. He didn't know which one, so he took them all out. He shoots her when she tries to apprehend him, and then leaves with the money. Both versions were rejected by the producers, who forced Ayer to create a new ending which showed Breacher as an antihero instead of a villain.

Kate Mara and Isla Fisher auditioned for the role of Lizzy in Sabotage, which was given to Malin Akerman. However, Akerman had to drop out of the project because of her pregnancy, so she was replaced by Mireille Enos.

During development on Hellboy, executives from Sony felt that the character should be changed from an out-and-out demon to a human who was somehow inexplicably born in Hell and would turn into Hellboy when he got angry, like the Incredible Hulk. Guillermo del Toro vetoed all attempts to change the character and eventually won out.

During the filming of Justice League, Gal Gadot suffered from morning sickness due to her being pregnant at the time. Not only did her pregnancy have to be hidden in post-production, but Gadot's assistant even had to stand by with a bucket just for her to vomit into after every cut.

I mean - given the performances in that movie, I suspect they all had vomit buckets on stand by after every line.
