Making a movie sometimes means making changes to the script.

Little Shop of Horrors

Seymour has a crush on Audrey, so he names his villainous people eating plant Audrey II. In the end, Audrey II is killed by Seymour, but the original had the roles reversed. Audrey II was supposed to eat Seymour and repopulate across the globe, but test audiences really didn’t like that, so it was reshot and changed. 

Dawn of the Dead

This zombie apocalypse film ends with Peter and Francine fleeing in a partly-fueled helicopter. While scary, it’s not the worst ending the film came up with. In one version, Francine and Peter take their own life to escape the wrath of the zombies.
