In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, the thriller that fuelled a split between two companies, and an early digital filming forerunner.

1993’s In The Line Of Fire nearly starred Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro, but when it did get made, there were ‘conversations’ over who was responsible for its success.

Meanwhile, 2002’s 28 Days Later started life when director Danny Boyle brought The Beach to the big screen. It’d take full advantage of emerging digital filming too.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
