* ''Film/SantaClausTheMovie'' was written as a musical with Leslie Bricusse-Henry Mancini songs, but the producers decided that genre wouldn't sell in the mid-1980s (this was just after ''Film/Annie1982'' had underperformed against its massive budget). Several of those songs do appear as background/diegetic music in the finished film, but so do some pop songs by other hands, and Bricusse was ''really'' bitter about this. The film didn't do well at the box office in any case.

* ''Film/SuicideSquad'' was meant to remain in the DarkerAndEdgier footsteps of previous Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse movies. Then some audiences showing more interest in the "fun and edgy" parts of the trailers, leading the studio to want more comedy and even hiring additional editors (the end credits list five!). As a result, the tone is inconsistent as hell.

[[HilariousInHindsight Also, he was going to]] [[VideoGame/SuperMario64 punch and kick enemies while empty-handed]], [[VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld ride on clouds]] (which were previously {{r|idingTheBomb}}ockets in earlier development) and fire at enemies in cloud drive-bys that would soon become [[BonusStage bonus coin stages]]. Also, the "jump button" was going to be "up" on the Control Pad, leaving the "A" button open for attacks.

* Creator/OliverStone was asked to direct ''Film/ConanTheBarbarian''. His version would have taken place in post-apocalyptic Earth rather than the fantasy setting of the stories.
