10 Movies Shot, Then Scrapped
Undoubtedly the biggest news story of 2014 so far (unless Apichatpong Weerasethakul replaced J.J. Abrams as director of "Star Wars: Episode VII" in between us writing this and it going live) revolves around Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight." It was announced as being the director's next movie, only for the script to apparently leak, reportedly through one of the potential actor's agents, and that caused Tarantino to announce that he was scrapping the project, at least for the moment. (He's also suing Gawker for helping disseminate the screenplay).

Since at least 2009, and probably longer than that, Peter Bogdanovich has been trying to restore and release "The Other Side of the Wind," the final film from his friend and filmmaking legend Orson Welles. But of course, as is usually the case with anything Welles related, the project got tied up in rights issues. But in 2011 things seemed like they might be clearing up. Laywer Kenneth Sidle said that the battle over the film between Welles' lover Oja Kodar and Jacqueline Boushehri, widow of a relative of the Shah of Iran and one of the film's producers (seriously), would be clearing up, allowing Bogdanovich to finally get into the editing bay with Welles' notes and complete a cut. But alas, there has been radio silence since.

They've been saying this for years, so while we're excited, we're also cautious, but according to the Guardian a deal for Orson Welles' lost film "The Other Side Of The Wind" may be hashed out in a matter of weeks leading to a proper release for the film.
