What does Shutdown mean?

Financiers and production companies have abandoned their attempt to develop movies in this stage. Therefore, any cast and crew that were involved with the movie are likely no longer attached. In some cases, shutdown movies restart development, often with new producers and cast. In other cases, such as X-Men Origins: Magneto or Spider-Man 4, the specific movies reach dead ends, but the franchises continue with other movies.
