Re-upload.It's crazy that Cutthroat Island was made instead of this.
The irony is that Cutthroat Island was chosen because they expected the budget to be smaller, but it eventually surpassed Crusade's proposed budget by quite a bit.

I think they can still make Crusade if someone really wanted, it's just a matter of someone stepping up. What is the most frightening is that Arnold gave an interview to Harry Knowles at AICN a few years ago and they discussed the project at length. Arnold thinks -- but isn't sure -- that he sold the project rights to none other than Jon Peters about ten years ago.

The fact the same thing happens when Kevin Smith had Superman fought a giant spider.

Man! Jon Peters? He seems to be a nice guy in interviews but man, does that man have crazy ideas.

Cutthroat Island by Beckner & Gorman was an amazing spec about a Pirate hunter who can't swim. It was going to be played by Michael Douglas in his prime, in a return to Romancing the Stone form. It all went to hell when they signed Renny Harlin and he cast his wife Geena Davis as the supporting lady pirate role. She had the role rewritten with her as the star, and Douglas bailed. It just went downhill from there.

Nothing Like an actors (and directors) ego to ruin what could have been a good film.

Finally got around to reading this, and it was pretty great on the whole. Of course we were deprived of seeing Arnold stitched inside a dead donkey with his head sticking out of its butt. :rolleyes:

Agreed. Loved that original script. There were several like that -- breezy adventure tales -- in the post-'88 spec boom that should have been made and would have cleaned up IMHO. TEXAS LEAD AND GOLD comes to mind.

Having read people rave about Crusade in other threads, I was about to put up a request thread until I saw this pop up. Many thanks!

Finally got around to reading this and it was pretty good! Quite a fun Western. Quite a shame it wasn't made.
