In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two movies that film studios had reluctance over – for different reasons!

Anchorman was a film that many passed on, and there were concerns that Will Ferrell was a big enough name to lead a studio comedy. Plus, the movie needed big changes in post-production.

Red Notice was a huge movie star package that originally was sold to Universal and Legendary following a Hollywood bidding war. But in the end, there were reasons why it ended up with Netflix.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
