Movies take a long time to get right. The screenplays alone go through several different drafts before shooting begins. Sometimes, however, the earlier versions of these movies are better than what ends up on the screen.

5. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull


Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is like George Lucas and Steven Spielberg spit on the Indiana Jones franchise, then dragged it through dirt and garbage and ran it through a projector. This may not have always been the case.

As it turns out Frank Darabont, the guy who wrote The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile , the first episode of The Walking Dead and all around fan of putting the article ‘the’ in front of all his titles, wrote a draft of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. George Lucas has not let the screenplay see the light of day, presumably because it is so much better than the finished version of the film. It is said that the Darabont version’s plot is pretty much the same except there is no Mutt Williams, which already improves the Crystal Skull by leaps and bounds.
