Movies have directors. Hell yeah, that’s the quality knowledge you come to Cracked for. Movies have directors, but sometimes movies end up having different directors. Sometimes, pre-production is a mess, the studio is skeptical, directors go out of their way to be pains in the butt, and sometimes, just sometimes, actors simply usurp their role. Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn’t. In every case, however, this leaves us with the untraversed path, with the Schrödingerian question of what could have been.
In this Pictofact, we venture into the quantum realm, while also providing a follow-up to a recent Cracked investigation. Indeed, we now theorize about movies that could have been way different had they kept their original directors. Some of these you will know, some of these you won’t, and some of these might have actually just turned out the same. But that’s the thing, we don’t really know. Like with the plot of forgotten Gwyneth Paltrow rom-coms or immediately forgotten Marvel shows, what we have here is a classic what if situation. So let’s see what might have been. Forgotten rom-coms, quantum mechanics, and original directors? Hell yeah, that’s the quality knowledge you come to Cracked for.
