In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two films with long gestation periods.

Disney was unsure of making TRON: Legacy for a long time. It took a trailer for a film that hadn’t been greenlit yet to ultimately make it decide.

Steve Coogan, meanwhile, was reluctant to finally press ahead with an Alan Partridge movie. And when he did, it proved to have a very difficult first week of filming.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
