Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things.

And that's good for the cast and crew of The Shawshank Redemption, because for a while things were looking grim!

Today, on the anniversary of its 1994 release, we look back on the Tim Robbins/Morgan Freeman prison drama as one of the greatest films of all time; it's even the number one rated movie of all time on IMDB.

But did you know back in when it was first released it was a total flop??

Luckily, the Oscar nominated film finally found its audience on home video and thousands of TNT airings.

But it wasn't the only film that wasn't appreciated during its initial release…

They ain't here to play no love interest!

It's no secret that men get the lion's share of meaty roles in Hollywood, but the good old gender swap was a studio solution long before the Ghostbusters reboot came along!

Sigourney Weaver's unforgettable portrayal of Ellen Ripley in Alien is widely considered one of the best film heroes of all time, but the badass heroine was originally written as the standard male action hero before director Ridley Scott decided to switch the gender to enhance the story!

Of course, Ripley isn't the only character to get the gender flip in the development stage.

Believe it or not, Angelina Jolie's super-spy role in Salt was originally supposed to be played by Tom Cruise, and Sandra Bullock's political strategist in Our Brand is Crisis was taken from George Clooney's hands!

While Miz Jolie has cited irreconcilable differences as the cause for this heartbreaking split, it's been said the twosome were mainly at odds over their differing parenting styles. That would explain why Angie's trying to snag sole custody of the Jolie-Pitt brood and leave Brad with only visitation rights. However, the Hollywood hunk is reportedly gearing up for quite the custody battle as he wants joint custody over their kiddos.
