In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a film that took time to find its audience – and one that never got to find one at all.

Tony Scott had to choose between directing Reservoir Dogs or True Romance by a young, upcoming talent called Quentin Tarantino. He picked the latter – and by the time filming began, big names were queuing up for a role.

After the collapse of the planned Halo movie, a deal was struck to ensure Bioshock didn’t suffer a similar fate. But it didn’t go to plan.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
