In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, the hit remake that started life as a much cheaper project, and a different vehicle for Jason Statham.

The Mummy went through many directors, getting gradually more and more expensive as it did so. Its effects would prove a bit of a challenge too.

The Bank Job seemed to be a film destined not to be made when Miramax backed out of the project. Many years later, Jason Statham would help bring it back to life.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
