In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, the asteroid movie in a race against time, and the Stephen King adaptation with a casting nightmare.
Three similar films were in the race when Disney greenlit Armageddon – but it committed to spending over $100m on the film without a script in place.
Actor after actor turned down Misery meanwhile, a film that took over half a year to nail down its two leads – and rewrite a key moment from the source novel too.
Stories of both are told in this episode.
