In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a sequel that went through a fair few ideas, and a comedy that heavily stumbled at the box office.

Die Hard With A Vengeance saw big changes behind the scenes – and a struggle to find an ending that works. As for Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, it turned into a film that had as much footage to work through as a documentary that had shot for a year.

Stories of both are told in this episode.

Apologies too: it’s come to my attention that I mispronounce Jorma Taccone’s first name throughout. Huge apologies – I did look this up too, but clearly misread the answer. My fault.

Please note: the Film Stories podcast is now off on its summer break after this episode. It will return in August.
