* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[Film/DonnieDarko Richard Kelly]] was offered the chance to do this movie. He was replaced when they saw his screenplay, which was set in a post-apocalyptic CrapsackWorld. It had ''nothing'' to do with the book. [[spoiler: Just to describe the tip of the iceberg, one of the major changes was that Stanely's crime was [[MercyKill Mercy Killing]] his plague-infected sister instead of stealing a pair of shoes.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PermanentPlaceholder: When Louis Sachar was writing the book, he used Stanley [[SdrawkcabName Yelnats]] as a filler name, planning to replace it later with a more normal name. He never did, and the weird name even ended up becoming a plot point.
