Carolco Pictures had finished preproduction on another mega production at the time, called 'Crusade', to be directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Filming was slated to begin, but the movie was canceled at the last moment, when Carolco could not finance two blockbusters at the same time, and opted to do the less costly Cutthroat Island (1995) (which later went over budget). Verhoeven went on to make Showgirls (1995) instead. After Cutthroat Island and Showgirls bankrupted the studio, Crusade was shelved indefinitely. See more »

Cutthroat Island is a movie that you can just sit back, relax and watch it with a big goofy grin on your face. Sure it tanked at the box office, but don't disregard it totally. It's entertaining as hell. Geena Davis is rather engaging as a female pirate and Frank Langella seemed to be enjoying himself. Most people will say that this movie can't hold a candle to the pirate films of Errol Flynn, and they're right. But for a rock em sock em pirate adventure with more explosions than the high seas ever saw, watch Cutthroat Island.
