Film Literature Main Trivia YMMV
The Island of Doctor Moreau
Awesome, Dear Boy: Ron Perlman, Val Kilmer and David Thewlis signed due to the perspective of working with Marlon Brando (Thewlis also had the motivations of a trip to Hawaii and a nice paycheck).
Executive Meddling / Troubled Production: The 1996 version was rocked by this, kicking off when director and screenwriter Richard Stanley was canned after four days of shooting.
On the plus side, he was replaced by the great John Frankenheimer.
Whom most of the cast and crew hated working with.
Hey, It's That Guy!:
Old Shame: David Thewlis had such a horrible time doing this he skipped the premiere and vowed to never watch the movie.
Science Marches On: Wells states that the changes to the animals are the result of various surgical techniques. Later adaptations of the same story state that genetic engineering is responsible for altering the animals.
Stan Winston: Did the make-up in the 1996 version.
Throw It In: One scene has Moreau wearing an ice bucket on his head, because Brando showed up with it and no one asked him to take it off.
