In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two glossy Hollywood movies, both boasting impressive casts.

Remaking Ocean’s Eleven had been in producer Jerry Weintraub’s head for many years, but it was sending the script to director Steven Soderbergh and star George Clooney that started things in earnest.

At the time Ocean’s was released, work was also underway on a Gucci family movie. That one though would take a lot, lot longer to come together…

Stories of both are told in this episode.
