In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, Simon tells the stories of two films that faced very particular challenges.
The original script to Wayne’s World 2 had to be thrown out at the last minute, and the movie wouldn’t start shooting until six months before release. Even then, legal threats were required.
As for WarGames (1983), the man who cast Matthew Broderick, and who directed sequences you see in the final movie, isn’t credited. And there’s a reason for that.
Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
