Back To The Future
It’s become practically mythic folklore at this point and arguably old hat. A famous lawsuit went along with it too. Crispin Glover was so “difficult” on the set of “Back To The Future,” or so the story goes anyhow, that director Robert Zemeckis and the producers decided to replace him for the two sequels. As you probably know by now, said film execs made the poor decision of “replacing” Glover with actors who wore prosthetics to look like him and interspliced that with old footage to create the illusion that it was still Crispin Glover (SAG rules now call this a no-no because of the lawsuit, which Glover filed and won).

The Bag Man
File this under: movies you forgot existed. As much as he's a bonafide legend, and will go down as one of the great actors of his time, Robert De Niro still will sign on to the most random, middling fare from time to time. Which brings us to "The Bag Man." Never heard of it? Well, maybe you'll recall when it was first announced a couple years ago under the title "Motel." Still doesn't ring any bells? Don't sweat it because the first trailer is here.

Crispin Glover has joined the indie-action thriller "Motel," which already has John Cusack, Robert De Niro and Rebecca Da Costa attached to star. David Grovic will direct the story about a hit man (Cusack) hired by a crime boss (De Niro), who teams up with a mysterious woman to fight off a bunch of baddies in the Delta. Um, okay. Martin Klebba aka the dwarf who punched people in the groin in "Project X" is also on board, and the film is currently shooting.

Just when you thought filmmakers had milked every gag possible from setting a movie in the 1970s, along comes writer/director Charles Matthau to prove that theory correct in the moribund Elmore Leonard adaptation “Freaky Deaky.” Though the source material takes place in 1988, Matthau heard the call of polyester and fur and answered be relocating the film to the seventies, resulting in a film drowning in cornball aesthetics, extravagant living room furniture, funk music out of a bad porno and loud fashion under the guise of mise en scene.

Tom Arnold Also Circling A Role As Crispin Glover's BrotherHow far and strangely we've fallen. For "Freaky Deaky," the adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel that at one time had folks like William H. Macy and Sienna Miller in the leads before going through a few casting shifts and settling on the lesser, but still somewhat respectable quartet of Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser, Craig Robinson and Katie Cassidy. The cast was recycled again, settling on a straight-to-DVD strong bunch of Billy Burke, Christian Slater, Michael Jai White, newcomer Breanne Racano and Roger Bart. That pretty much killed whatever interest we had in the project -- until now.
