A compulsively readable journey into the area of movie-making where all writers, directors and stars fear to tread: Development Hell, the place where scripts are written, actors hired and sets designed... but the movies rarely actually get made
Whatever happened to Darren Aronofsky's "Batman" movie starring Clint Eastwood? Why were there so many scripts written over the years for Steven Spielberg and George Lucas's fourth" Indiana Jones" movie? Why was Lara Croft's journey to the big screen so tortuous, and what prevented Paul Verhoeven from filming what he calls "one of the greatest scripts ever written"? Why did Ridley Scott's "Crisis in the Hot Zone "collapse days away from filming, and were the Beatles really set to star in "Lord of the Rings"? What does Neil Gaiman think of the attempts to adapt his comic book series "The Sandman"?
All these lost projects, and more, are covered in this major book, which features many exclusive interviews with the writers and directors involved.
