In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two James Bond projects: one got made, one didn't.

2021's No Time To Die was, of course, beset by release delays and and problems. But even before then, it'd been a difficult James Bond movie to put together.

After the success of 2002's Die Another Day, MGM and Eon wanted a spin-off movie for Halle Berry's Jinx character meanwhile. It got quite far too, before the plug was abruptly pulled.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
