    • Brad: "Spider-Man: No Way Home" Script Was Constantly Being Rewritten During Filming
      • From GQ: The production of No Way Home sounds like total chaos. As the first day of filming approached, several key actors hadn't signed on yet. "Some people were trying to figure out whether they wanted to do it, and we needed all of them or none," Holland says. The movie was reportedly going to be released after the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel, but when that film was delayed by COVID, it was decided that No Way Home would go first, requiring changes to the plot. Even once filming was underway, the script was being rewritten on an almost daily basis. "You could ask the director, 'What happens in act three?' And his response would be, 'I'm still trying to figure it out,' " Holland says.

      • Anyway, the day finally came to shoot the big finale, "the crescendo scene, like, is this really f***ing happening? It's crazy." Only, it wasn't working. "I kept stopping and being like, 'I'm so sorry, I just don't believe what I'm saying.' " The director, Jon Watts, took him aside, and Holland told him: It wasn't me. The scene was wrong. "We sat down, we went through it, and we came up with a new idea," Holland says. "Then we pitched it to the writers, they rewrote it, and it works great."
