In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two 90s movies, that faced very different challenges.

The Frighteners wasn’t originally envisaged as a film. Wasn’t envisaged as a summer movie. And wasn’t envisaged as a film that followed an Oscar-nominated breakthrough movie. Yet, in each case, it was.

The Green Mile, meanwhile, was a film that hit a sizeable casting roadblock – until Bruce Willis picked up the phone.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
