The Voice for Shrek was supposed to be that of Chris Farley. Dialogue for the 2001 DreamWorks movie was actually 80-90 percent complete before Farley passed away from a drug overdose on December 18, 1997. Mike Myers stepped in and they had to re do the entire script. Listen to the dialog between Eddie Murphy and Chris Farley that would have been the campfire scene.
