In retrospect, it seems, Patronella Luke's was a death foretold. All week, the children of Mt. Olive Church of God in Christ had been studying the Bible in a small chapel next to the main sanctuary on a corner in Southeast Los Angeles. Friday night, during commencement ceremonies, the pastor, the Rev. J. C. Brewster, taught a chilling, although apparently unintentional, lesson about prophecy.

Even though it soon became clear the movie would have to be made without its star (Tobey Maguire) and director (Sam Raimi) — losses that would generally be considered deal-breakers — Ziskin took the then-unconventional route of starting over with a new director and actor.
