Films stuck in limbo because of rights issues
It seems like more movies are being made than ever before these days as Hollywood continues to funnel countless prequels, sequels, and remakes into cinemas worldwide. However, audiences might be surprised to learn that not every film greenlighted by Hollywood actually makes it to screens. Far too often, projects are announced and expectations are hyped only for these films to languish in "development hell," never to see the light of day. While some of these projects are held back due to creative differences or scheduling conflicts, others are trapped, stuck in a state of pre-production (or, as some say, pre-pre-production) because of legal issues concerning the rights involved. So join us as we hold out hope for, and take a look at, a host of anticipated movies currently stuck in film limbo.
