In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, the return of Judge Dredd to the big screen, and the role that helped land Brendan Fraser The Mummy.

2012’s Dredd righted many of the wrongs of the big budget 1995 movie based on the same character. But behind the scenes, there were some notable challenges.

Back in 1997, Disney’s live action George Of The Jungle helped cement Brendan Fraser as a movie star – but the film’s original screenwriter was reluctant to take the project to Disney in the first place.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
