In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a Martin Scorsese film that took years to come together, and a career-altering Kevin Smith movie.

The Irishman was a long talked about reunion of Scorsese and Robert De Niro – but it was always set to be expensive, long, and not family-friendly. Just who would want to pay the bill?

Finding a financier was much easier where Kevin Smith’s Zack And Miri Make A Porno was concerned – but other problems were around the corner.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
