In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two sequels, one with a far more complete script than the other!
2001’s Jurassic Park III arrived a year after originally planned, thanks to a very late decision to abandon the script – after $18m had already been spent on the film.
Muppets Most Wanted (2014) meanwhile faced huge logistical problems, courtesy of a decision to make the film in London. That, and its late name change caused a problem too.
Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
