In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two films where the actors had to get used to a whole load of takes.

The Social Network came with a 161-page script from Aaron Sorkin to fit into a two hour movie. And director David Fincher came up with a simple idea to make sure it’d fit.

For The Naked Gun 2 1/2, director David Zucker had to make sure his actors stuck very much to the script – and he also wanted to make sure an environmental message snuck into the film.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
