comment Film franchise forced to change actors due to unforeseen circumstances
The latest Fast and Furious springs to mind, as I've read that they are considering using Paul Walker's brother to fill in for the late actor in order to make some sense of the shots paul had already filmed.

comment Film franchise forced to change actors due to unforeseen circumstances
If this indeed too close to a list question for comfort, perhaps it could be reworded as there is a potentially interesting question there - more along the lines of "How do production companies change actors during production due to unforeseen circumstances?"

comment Camera sway as cinematic technique?
Opinion-based, yes. Do I heartily agree? Yes ;) I can't stand the Bourne films for this very reason, and Spielberg had an interesting comment to make about hand-held action scenes which addressed the lack of 'geography' in the framing. If the viewer has no sense of the space around the characters, then a vital element is lost from these scenes. Of course, Private Ryan was supposed to be frantic/confusing and documentary-style, so we'll let Steve have his moment too ;)
