Cast members for Hatari (1962) signed on for a trip to Africa with only a sketch of a screenplay involving the capture of wild animals for release in worldwide zoos.  Howard Hawks originally wanted Clark Gable to star opposite John Wayne, but the studio budget would not allow for it, and Gable passed away before filming began.
