Many musicals have enjoyed great success, but sadly, Temptation isn’t one of them. Based around the German icon Faust making a deal with the devil, the rock musical featured now-famous actress Zoe Saldana. Sadly, we never got to see the Guardians of the Galaxy star’s performance as the movie was deemed incomplete by one of its producers and was promptly cast into the Hollywood abyss.
37. King Conqueror
Filmed in 2008 – and very tentatively scheduled for a 2009 release – the Spanish historical movie King Conqueror looked to be an interesting insight into the lives of King Peter II of Aragon and King James I the Conqueror. However, despite sporting acclaimed Brit Tim Roth in the lead role, King Conqueror was put on hold. And ultimately it was retired before it could even grace movie theaters.
36. The American
Filmmaking was a very different beast back in the 1920s. Indeed, many advancements and effects that we take for granted today were not quite so easy to achieve back then. Unfortunately, the 1927 western flick The American ended up being one of the casualties of this technologically-trying time. That’s because pioneering producer George K. Spoor had it filmed in an early form of widescreen display called Natural Vision. Sadly, it never saw the light of day despite Spoor’s boldness.
