In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two big screen returns: one that went a little bit better than the other.

Superman IV: The Quest For Peace (1987) saw Christopher Reeve return to play the Man of Steel. But a late more than halving of the production budget played havoc with the film, and led it to Milton Keynes.

The Muppets (2011) meanwhile in a small way had the hit sex comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall to thank for its existence. It was a seven year battle to get the film made.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
