In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a pair of films that gave 20th Century Fox headaches.

Tony Scott first planned to make Man On Fire in the 1980s. When he returned to the idea in the early 2000s, he switched the location to Mexico – and was heading into trouble.

The plan with 1999’s Office Space was for a low budget comedy. But then Fox decided it wanted a movie star involved – and problems built from there.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
