It’s true what they say: the good die young

As even the most casual cinema buff already knows, film productions get canceled all the time. A reminder of the colossal effort required to actually make a movie, these aborted projects will typically be announced by their respective studios, a script will be developed and cast and crew hired – only to be scuttled soon after.

There are plenty of reasons why this occurs – the most common causes are creative disagreements between studio executives and the filmmakers, or financial concerns – but regardless, these reasons wind up being sufficient to ensure the plug is pulled. Like we said, happens all the time – but what doesn’t happen that often is that a film actually commences shooting before it’s shut down!

The rationale behind studios scrapping a production after filming is underway vary wildly – although again, artistic disputes and funding-related problems remain the prominent culprits. But there have also been instances of onset tragedies, freak weather conditions, and (allegedly, at least) a voodoo curse resulting in films being scuttled while the director is still calling “action!”

With this in mind, we’ve pulled together a list of 16 Movies That Were Canceled During Filming.
