As a self-proclaimed movie geek, I try to devour as much as I can about a film production that interests or excites me. Who is directing it? Who is starring in it?

After a movie is released, it may have gone through several changes, but it was ultimately put out for public consumption. However, not all movies are are finished, or even make it out of principle production and languish in what is known as “development hell.” Author David Hughes has expertly researched, and documented numerous movie productions that have stalled out in his book, ‘Tales From Development Hell: The Greatest Movies Never Made?’
