The Rock (1996) utilised lots of writers, and its stars – Sean Connery, Nicolas Cage, Ed Harris – all had significant input. Director Michael Bay meanwhile would do a bit of battle with Disney over the film.

Jonathan Mostow first had the inspiration for U-571 when he was developing The Game. But as he lost control of that film, his submarine movie bubbled up – and hit some controversial waters.
