'League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen' Behind-The-Scenes Stories

Sean Connery has turned down a lot of big roles, which is why he took the gig as Allan Quatermain in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. But while Alan Moore's graphic novel series was great, the same can hardly be said for the film adaptation (although some consider it a guilty pleasure comic book movie). Behind-the-scenes stories about The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen started leaking out during production of the film, and they sound portentous; in retrospect, these rumors ended up being quite prescient - as much as the film was a mess on screen, the off-screen goings-on were much worse.

From screaming matches to studio overreach to nature wreaking havoc on the production, LXG never really had a chance. If you saw this movie in theaters, there's a good chance you didn't know some things about how it came to be - otherwise, you would have seen something better.
