List: Top 3 Troubled Production Movies

List: Top 3 Troubled Production Movies

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed the best movies that overcame a rough production process. There are some productions that just don’t go as well as one would like. Directors are fired, actors have to leave, the payroll gets stolen or maybe sets get destroyed, it happens. Sometimes that works in the film’s benefit and sometimes it goes horribly wrong. For our Top 3 this week, we talk about the films that take advantage of the film’s production hell. And boy, are there some classics here.

That being said, what troubled production movies would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:
