In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a British sensation and the reunion of the Top Gun team.

Trainspotting came together quickly, as director Danny Boyle and his team built on the success of 1995’s Shallow Grave. Small problem? Even as the script was being written, the rights to the source book hadn’t been secured.

With Days Of Thunder, it looks simple: bring the star, producer and director of Top Gun back together, and box office gold would follow. What happened though was one of the most infamous blockbuster movie shoots of its era.
