In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, Scorsese and De Niro’s third film together in the 90s, and how Kevin Smith took on the Hollywood system.

Casino wasn’t originally going to be the film Martin Scorsese made in the mid-90s – and he found himself up against problems when its source novel came out after the film.

With Red State, writer and director Kevin Smith decided to challenge the way Hollywood did business – with mixed results.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
