In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two films long in the planning – but with a fair few bumps on the way.

Ridley Scott was eventually lured back to the Alien saga with 2012’s Prometheus. Even then, he originally found a different director – and two different writers each took it further away from the original.

The Wallace & Gromit film, The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit, was the start of the end for a major deal between Aardman and DreamWorks Animation – and Aardman was willing to take the film elsewhere anyway.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
