Maverick (1994) and Secretary (2002‪)‬ Film Stories with Simon Brew

    • Film History

In this episode, a blockbuster that needed a late casting change, and an indie success that struggled to get actors interested at all.

Maverick at one stage interested the likes of Paul Newman and Meg Ryan. And when it did get filming, the first half hour was pretty much dropped months before release.

Secretary spent pretty much a year in limbo as high profile actors were put off my its subject matter - and co-lead James Spader turned it down originally too.
