In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a pair of big hit movies, that each had their challenges to make.

With The Expendables, Sylvester Stallone was on acting, writing and director duties. But he ended up with as many injuries as there were action stars in his film, and it’d be a taxing movie to make.

Honey, I Shrunk The Kids was the brainchild of Re-animator director Stuart Gordon, and Chevy Chase had been earmarked for the lead. But Chase was busy, and when Gordon fell ill, a new director was required late in the day.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
