The Story Behind "Snakes on a Plane"


Now that everyone is love with Snakes on a Plane (even though it doesn't come out until August), the movie seems like a no-brainer. But when it was first conceived, there were concerns about, wait for it, the title. According to Reuters, people at New Line thought the movie was "nothing but a simple programmer with a 'stupid title.'" But once Samuel L. Jackson got attached, they got more enthusiastic about the movie and changed the name to Pacific Air Flight 121 for "casting purposes." One agent said at the time, "Who wants to be in a movie called Snakes on a Plane?" Jackson, apparently, who now says, "That's the only reason I took the job: I read the title...You either want to see that, or you don't." Well, I do, and I wouldn't have if it weren't for the title. Also, if it weren't for the title, there wouldn't have been this kick-ass logo!
