* Creator/{{Hasbro}} has attempted [[http://mentalfloss.com/article/69454/hollywoods-repeated-inexplicable-attempts-stretch-armstrong-movie multiple times]] since TheNineties to give Stretch Armstrong his own movie. Proposals varied wildly, from a WhenYouComingHomeDad comedy, to a DarkerAndEdgier action tentpole. Actors considered include Creator/DannyDeVito, Creator/JackieChan, and Creator/TaylorLautner. Lautner even received [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HtNzFnS5EE an animatic]] demonstrating how his stretching powers could apply to a set piece. Hasbro ultimately had more luck adapting Stretch Armstrong for the small screen; Creator/{{Netflix}} gave him his own cartoon in 2017, starring Creator/ScottMenville.

* The ''Film/PacificRim'' sequel. The film was shelved indefinitely due to a dispute between co-producing studios Creator/LegendaryPictures and Creator/{{Universal}} over creative direction. This culminated in ''Film/KongSkullIsland'' [[ChannelHop jumping ship]] to Creator/WarnerBros because Universal refused to allow Legendary to set the stage for a crossover between Film/KingKong and Franchise/{{Godzilla}}, which Legendary had made a [[Film/Godzilla2014 highly successful reboot]] of and wanted to capitalize on that film's success. Despite this, director Creator/GuillermoDelToro stated the film was still moving forward in spite of the ExecutiveMeddling.

* The unfinished 1938 production of ''I, Claudius'' was waylaid by an accident involving its lead actress and by the difficulty that Creator/CharlesLaughton had in getting into Claudius's role. Only a few scenes from the film were ever publicly released in the 1960s. (The DVD release of the TV version of ''Series/IClaudius'' includes a documentary which features this footage.)
