In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a sequel that struggled, and a sleeper hit that overcame a few difficulties of its own.
Star Trek Nemesis took a little while to greenlight in the first place – and then the hiring of a director best known for action didn’t quite pay off.
With Sister Act, in spite of it being a huge hit, its original writer wanted to drop his name off it, in favour of the credit ‘Written by Goofy’!
Stories of both are told in this episode.
