A compulsively readable journey into the area of film-making where all writers, directors and stars fear to tread: Development Hell, the place where scripts are written, actors hired and sets designed... but the films rarely actually get made! Whatever happened to Darren Aronofskya€™s Batman movie starring Clint Eastwood? Why were there so many scripts written over the years for Steven Spielberg and George Lucasa€™s fourth Indiana Jones movie? Why was Lara Crofta€™s journey to the big screen so tortuous, and what prevented Paul Verhoeven from filming what he calls a€œone of the greatest scripts ever writtena€? Why did Ridley Scotta€™s Crisis in the Hot Zone collapse days away from filming, and were the Beatles really set to star in Lord of the Rings? What does Neil Gaiman think of the attempts to adapt his comic book series The Sandman? All these lost projects, and more, are covered in this major book, which features many exclusive interviews with the writers and directors involved.... in Inhuman Remains remained original, until Dead Set and The Crazies remake, between them, put the final nails in its coffin. ... and encompassing The Thing, Short Circuit and, more recently, TheMaskof Zorro, a surprise hitfor Sony Pictures.
