In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two films that came together at very different speeds.

Alien Vs Predator was sparked by a spec script, but it’d be Paul W S Anderson who got the job – and he spent his own cash on something rather special for his pitch.

Parenthood, meanwhile, was the idea of director Ron Howard – but bringing together its incredible cast was not without challenges.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
