Given that making a movie involves collaboration between numerous people with huge egos, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise when reports surface detailing various behind-the-scenes disputes. As much as movies themselves are often magical experiences, telling stories that take us to other worlds, the process of actually crafting that magic is often anything but. The following 10 films are all prime examples of turbulent productions, with outrageous behind-the-scenes disputes that have become something of Hollywood legends themselves.
10. Hollywood Homicide (2003)
It’s been known for quite a while that Harrison Ford can be a bit of a grump and difficult to work with. One of the most prominent examples of this behavior comes from the forgettable 2003 police drama Hollywood Homicide, which starred Harrison Ford as a suitably bitter older detective paired with a younger partner, played by Josh Hartnett. Reportedly, Ford would refer to Hartnett as a “punk”, while Hartnett would dish back by calling Ford an ‘old fart.” At least the pair were able to make nice by the time production was set to wrap, as Hartnett stated that they “ended up getting along near the end.”
