In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, one big sequel with problems, and a drama that had to wait for its release.

Terminator Genisys (2015) was set to kickstart a new trilogy of Terminator films. But then so was Terminator Salvation (2009) before rights issues hit.

2002’s In America boasts four lead characters, three of which are based on its screenwriters. And it had a bit of a journey to the screen.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
