In Hollywood, casting rumors constantly abound. Tinsel Town runs on movie news and scoops, most frequently the kind you’d find in a tabloid. While these rumor-fueled headlines all deserve a grain of salt, some of them have stretched the limits of reality further than they had any right. Here are 15 of the best-worst casting rumors ever to come out of Hollywood, almost none of which had any basis in reality.

Okay, so this isn’t strictly related to casting, but we’re giving it an honorable mention. Back in the mid-aughts The Guardian actually published a piece confirming the Pulp Fiction director was in talks to helm a Friday the 13th sequel. Though Tarantino has been an outspoken fan of the franchise, the idea seemed about as likely as Martin Scorsese directing a Sleepaway Camp remake. Tarantino’s camp squashed the rumor a week after it started. Ironically, the director’s Kill Bill follow-up would be an original slasher called Death Proof.

    So on what planet does Death Proof qualify as a slasher? Sure, it’s a terrible film but that doesn’t make it a slasher. I could name many slashers that are far better than Death Proof.
