** The ride itself has an example within it. In the beginning, one of the planned characters/gags in the ride was going to be the "Hatbox Ghost", the groom to the Attic's bride, whose head would disappear from his shoulders and reappear in his hatbox in time with the bride's heartbeat. The figure was produced, and the lighting implemented to create the disappearing trick, but the figure was taken out very shortly thereafter once it was clear that the distance between the riders and the figure was too short to allow the effect to work. Because it was taken out so early and so few people had seen it, the Hatbox Ghost achieved legendary status within the fanbase. His presence endured in the franchise, and in 2015, with decades of technological advancement, the Hatbox Ghost was made again with a more complex digital head-transfer effect and more animation, finally placing him in the ride like he was always supposed to be.

* ''Film/SonicTheHedgehog'', based on the [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog video game franchise]], had been on and off in production since the early 1990s but it seemed as if it would never be realized. The rights were first picked up by MGM only for the studio to run into script problems raised by Creator/{{Sega}}, who disliked nearly every script studio heads tossed around. Eventually, MGM lost the rights and the film went into hell, only for Ben Hurst, a head writer for ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'', to negotiate the rights so that he could do a continuation of what was supposed to be the third season. This ran into problems when Ken Penders, then-head writer of the [[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog comic book series]], tried to intervene and make the movie himself. It was placed in hell once again when Sega decided to place more interest in ''Anime/SonicX''. It was finally taken out of hell more than a decade later, when Sony bagged the rights and set a movie for a 2018 release, with Neal Moritz and Tim Miller as producer and executive producer, respectively.

* ''Film/TheFighter'' was in limbo for four years. MarkWahlberg began training (boxing) for the role in 2005. Throughout the various production delays, Wahlberg continued to train every day so that he could be ready for filming. Filming finally began in July 2009.

* The American adaptation of ''Manga/DeathNote''. It was announced by WarnerBros in 2008 after a huge bidding war and said to be released in 2011 (with a rumor around that the protagonist would be played by ZacEfron). Creator/ShaneBlack had been announced as the director, but he left the project in July 2014, citing CreativeDifferences (read: he wanted to stay more faithful to the manga; the studio wanted to [[ExecutiveMeddling change everything]]). Gus Van Saint was rumored to be directing, but the currently attached director is Adam Wingard. Nat Wolff and Margaret Qualley were cast in roles for the film, and production was moving along smoothly until Warner canceled the project in their decision to release fewer films per year. However, they allowed Wingard to shop the project elsewhere, and Creator/{{Netflix}} picked up the rights, with Keith Stanfield, Paul Nakauchi, and Shea Whigham joining the cast and Jeremy Slater writing the script. Filming officially began in Vancouver on June 30, 2016 for a 2017 release.

* A ''[[Manga/{{Gunnm}} Battle Angel]]'' film with director James Cameron. On again off again with rumors as far back as the early 2000s including supposed casting calls for a little girl who could move like a cat ... then nothing. Then he said he was waiting for the technology to catch up to his vision. Then ''Film/{{Avatar}}''. WordOfGod has stated that after he was done with ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' he ''still'' did not believe the technology was ready yet. After multiple delay's and Cameron being way too busy with the Avatar Sequels, he officially passed the project off to Creator/RobertRodriguez to direct (with Cameron still producing). Rosa Salazar has been cast in the title role (beating out Maika Monroe and Creator/ZendayaColeman), and TwentiethCenturyFox began negotiating the budget down from the $170-200 million range before they could officially greenlight the film. The film is now officially in production and slated to be released on July 20, 2018.

DevelopmentHell is what some works go through if there's too much of ExecutiveMeddling, lawsuits, [[TroubledProduction and so on.]] The fanbase is waiting more and more impatiently, but nothing gets done.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansTheJudasContract'' was originally one of three films to kick off the DCUniverseOriginalMovies line alongside ''WesternAnimation/SupermanDoomsday'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueTheNewFrontier'' but was postponed various times before being cancelled, due to DC feeling that people wouldn't like that sort of story. However, after the success of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueVsTeenTitans'', the story was greenlit again and is set to be released in 2017

* The film adaptation of ''Film/AtlasShrugged''. There were two failed attempts in TheSeventies to turn it into a MiniSeries -- the first one fell through when Creator/AynRand wasn't able to secure final script approval, while the second one had a finished script (with Rand's approval) written by Stirling Silliphant (writer of ''Film/InTheHeatOfTheNight'', ''Series/{{Route 66}}'', ''[[Film/VillageOfTheDamned1960 Village of the Damned]]'', ''Film/ThePoseidonAdventure'', and ''Film/TheToweringInferno'') and was gearing up for production at Creator/{{NBC}}, but that too was halted after Fred Silverman came to power at the network. Rand started work on her own script, but [[AuthorExistenceFailure she died]] with only a third of it finished. The film rights switched hands multiple times in the ensuing decades, and at one point such stars as Creator/AngelinaJolie, Creator/BradPitt, Creator/CharlizeTheron, Creator/JuliaRoberts, Creator/AnneHathaway, and RussellCrowe were all attached. All of their deals, however, fell through, and the current rights-holders rushed through an independently-financed production [[MoneyDearBoy in order to prevent the film rights from reverting to the Rand estate]]. The result, released in 2011 as ''Atlas Shrugged: Part I'', was critically thrashed and went largely ignored even by the conservatives and libertarians that its marketing aggressively courted. Still, the filmmakers managed to get the second and third parts of the trilogy out the door in 2012 and 2014, albeit with [[NoBudget even smaller budgets]] (the third film was made for just $5 million) and [[TheOtherDarrin recast actors]] in every film.
