In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a comedy whose first cut was three times as long, and an action movie shot very much on the move!

Planes, Trains And Automobiles wasn’t originally set to be directed by John Hughes. But when the cast came together, he took over the film – and he’d have a race against time to make it.

With Crank, directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor used guerilla filming tactics to shoot their movie – which nearly starred Nicolas Cage.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
