In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two difficult blockbuster productions.

The Last Boy Scout brought together writer Shane Black, producer Joel Silver, director Tony Scott and star Bruce Willis. Four heavyweights, lots of arguments, and a film that needed saving in the edit.

The Beach‘s problems came as much before filming meanwhile: the $50m film led to director Danny Boyle and actor Ewan McGregor having a long-running falling out. Things went downhill a bit from there.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
