In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two films that – unusually – came together really quickly.

Steven Spielberg had the idea for The Goonies, with Richard Donner directing and Chris Columbus writing. It’d turn out to be a quite a lively shoot, though.

The biggest delay hitting a remake of Father Of The Bride was securing the rights in the first place – oh, and having to replace a major role in the film less than two weeks before filming.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
