In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two hit movies that both came together quite quickly.

Swordfish was a film whose opening monologue lured in its stars. But it was a complicated action scene, and a notorious hacking sequence, that proved taxing.

Meanwhile, While You Were Sleeping was the film that proved Sandra Bullock was a movie star. Yet several other people nearly took the lead first.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
