Behind the Scenes Feuds That Changed the Direction of Movies

Updated 6 Nov 2017 105.5k views15 items

There are many different voices on a movie set: the director, who is responsible for the look and feel of the film, the actors, who bring their own sensibilities of craft with them to each movie, and the studios and producers, who are responsible for overseeing the financial interests of the film. So who’s the boss? And who makes the final decisions? If there were an easy answer to that question, there wouldn't be so many movies that made changes because of actor feuds.

Some actors are notoriously hard to work with. Think that Bill Murray is simply a sweet, funny, comedic genius? Think again. He’s got a reputation for being unkind to people he doesn’t like: just ask Lucy Liu. Several directors also have a bad reputation. Megan Fox publicly compared Michael Bay’s on-set behavior to Hitler, so it’s no wonder why she was subsequently written out of Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

These are just a few of the notorious behind-the-scenes fights that changed film plots or the direction of a project. Who knows what kind secret blowups have taken place in an actor’s trailer or in a studio head’s office? Here are 15 behind-the-scenes feuds that changed movies.
