In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two hit movies that overcome notable obstacles.

Wayne’s World was filmed on a tight schedule, against a backdrop of sadness for Mike Myers. He’d threaten to leave the project at one point too, and the production was not a happy one.

Moneyball meanwhile was all set to film a year earlier than it did, with a different directing and some alternate casting. But Sony pulled the plug on it, five days before shooting.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
