In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, the film that was supposed to win Martin Scorsese an Oscar, and a sequel that originally wasn’t going to happen.

Back in the late 70s, Martin Scorsese took out an advert declaring Gangs Of New York to be his next film. When he finally got to make it, it’d be something of a nightmare production.

Crocodile Dundee II was a happier ship – but it ran into a dispute of its own while shooting in New York.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
