In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a film that came together after a very brief pitch, and a movie whose price rocketed due to external factors.

Jason Bateman was at one time in line to direct the comedy/thriller Game Night  – but a change in writers meant a change in plan. Disney’s Hercules, meanwhile, came very close to casting Jack Nicholson – until a Batman problem surfaced.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
