In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a ‘strange’ action movie hit, and a sequel that took seven years to come together.

Face/Off was originally set 100 years in the future, and at one stage Johnny Depp was on the wishlist. Plus one studio bought the film and let it go.

Rocky Balboa saw Sylvester Stallone wanting to right the wrongs of Rocky V. But his new co-star gave him a shock on day one of filming.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
