In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two sequels to Paramount hits, and the stories behind them.

Addams Family Values came together quickly following the success of the 1991 original. But director Barry Sonnenfeld would have to step away from one of the biggest films of the 1990s to make it.

With Mission: Impossible 2, the film running over schedule had an impact on both X-Men and Charlie’s Angels. But Paramount played hardball when a further year-long delay was looking on the cards.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
