In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, Simon looks at pivotal films to a pair of studios.

Lionsgate raided the budgets of lots of projects to try and pay for The Hunger Games (2012), at the same time it was trying to fend off a hostile investor that threatened the shape of the company.

For Castle Rock, meanwhile, City Slickers (1991) was to be its first ever film. Charles Bronson, for one, was keen not to be involved…

Stories of both are discussed in this episode…
